How in the World was Trump Elected?

shutterstock_315714344

A friend recently posted an article by the Wall Street Journal, on Facebook. The article was titled, ” ‘Deplorables’ Rise Up to Reshape America,” written by Gerald Seib. Intrigued, as I have always considered the Wall Street Journal to be a respected publication, I read the article. It was insulting to say the least. Sadly, I tossed my Wall Street Journal in the trash and have cancelled my subscription, and with a sigh admit that there is no honest ‘middle of the road’  journalism left in the United States.

We have all heard the bloviating of every major news station and every mainstream publication, who demonized Trump from the beginning, thinking they understand the reason that he was propelled into the White House. Of course, those of us who jumped into the “deplorables” basket freely with enthusiasm, relieved that someone was finally running for office who understood what was happening to our country, know the REAL REASON Trump won. We should all be asking ourselves why anyone would believe the mainstream media in their post-election frenzy, when they clearly lied, misrepresented the truth, cheated in the debates and flat-out lied to the American people during the entire election process. These same naysayers are now standing up clearly delusional in their belief that only they can predict what he will do when he takes control of the White House and the once most powerful Nation in the world.

Well, here’s a newsflash. They didn’t have clue when he joined the race, they purposefully tried to destroy him when he was winning the race and now they will misrepresent, yet again, what they think will happen to the United States now that he has won. In their infinite stupidity and allegiance to the liberal political elite, they scream racist, homophobe, Islamaphobe, bigot and destroyer of the atmosphere in a continued effort to scare anyone who might agree that we need change. I think, as a self-professed deplorable, I should explain the real reason he won from the point of view of a person who actually voted for him.

Unfortunately, the WSJ article is full of accusations, divisiveness and polarization which is, in fact, the message of the liberal left. A left who demands tolerance, unless of course you disagree with them, which will result in the destruction of  your personal property, the burning of your business or the beating of your life. Trump won the White House because the “majority” of Americans who voted for him….whites, blacks, gays, women, Latinos, immigrants (legal), rich, poor uneducated and educated, white-collar and blue-collar are sick of the lawlessness and the complete disregard for the exceptionalism of the United States and its people. The majority of America falls in the middle, not only in opinions, but in a class of people who believe that hard work, the rule of law and our constitution should be important enough to defend. This majority is tired of being sacrificed at the altar of Wall Street and the political elites through bail outs and stimulus given to the very people who destroyed the economy for their own personal gain in the first place. Crooks who were handed our money, earned by the same hard-working American people, who lost their homes, their jobs, their savings and retirement plans. Our money, given to the same crooks who were allowed to take the millions they stole and continue with their lives while never being punished or held accountable for their illegal manipulation of the housing market in the first place.

This ‘Trump’ majority was tired of hearing Democrats and our President apologize for the very things that made this country great and safe, while throwing anyone, who held this country dear, under the bus. A bus full of politically well-connected politicians, CEO’s and special interests who were purposefully throwing billions of American dollars to the United Nations while they, in their high and mighty, misguided infinite wisdom, want the UN to rule the world. ‘Globalization,’ the new buzz word of the liberal left. A word that ultimately means that the US should be bowing to the altar of the same power-hungry global elites who think they know what is best for the ‘stupid’ Americans. The same elites that want open borders that will eventually make America a place that no longer honors its citizens or puts them first.  If they could fool us in to handing over our democratic society, then who else in the world would dare question their intentions. The United States is a great nation and one that has served as a beacon of freedom to the majority of the world. A country that offers liberty, freedom of speech and religion without fear of persecution. A country where hard work will reap great success. A country where millions will place their money and their lives on the line, in order to be called an American citizen. However, ignoring the immigrants  who have lined up for years to become a part of this great nation, our political elite give ambassadorships, visas and passports to anyone who will write a check to their favorite charity….them. They chastise anyone who disagrees with allowing unvetted refugees, who have already committed mass murder as a thank you to those who have opened their borders, to overtake our nation by calling us racists instead of realists.

Meanwhile here at home, the liberal left, in their misguided self-professed wisdom decided to fundamentally change our great Nation. They took over our healthcare, promising lies of affordability, while knowing from the beginning that a single payer system was the ultimate prize. Our education system, taken over by government, is infiltrated with liberal professors and educators who slowly but surely poison the minds of our future generations. They begin by destroying the integrity of the our nation and then follow-up with altering our actual history to suit their twisted agenda of eventually controlling the masses.  Dumb down the youth of today so they can control the adults of tomorrow.  Now, their successful infiltration of the education system has resulted in a generation who think they are entitled to everything without lifting a finger. A generation who was congratulated and handed trophies in their youth for doing nothing. A generation who is so spoiled and uninformed that they demean the very people who fought for and died for their rights to insult our country and burn our flag without retribution. The same generation who, under the protection of democracy, burn their communities and destroy local businesses because they didn’t get their way. Riots and destruction funded by the liberal elites who use the youth to do the dirty work so they can continue to pretend outrage.  The same generation who cheer the corrupt political elite who have weaponized our government agencies and used them to attack and destroy anyone who dare call out their destructive agendas. A generation who cannot recognize how they are being used by the left to seal a future for the United States that gives the well-connected and the elites more power and more money while the rest of us are sacrificed at the altar of globalism.

Yes, Donald Trump was elected and has, by the wish of the majority of the people, separated himself from the old Republican party and the Democrats, by standing up for life, liberty and the right of every American to pursue happiness without the interference of a bloated, misguided, noninclusive government, who has forgotten its place.  Trump, though the power of the people, will put our government back where it belongs….a government of the people, for the people and by the people.

White Privilege And Racism Or Political Privilege And Corruption?

shutterstock_226795639

As long as there are humans on this earth, there will be racism and discrimination. But don’t let our politicians fool you into believing it only happens to blacks fueled strictly by whites. Racism is not a one way street. It is committed and experienced by all. We have reached a turning point in our society where our political leaders are no longer setting an example for better behavior and tolerance or even cheering for the progress we have already made, but are fueling polarization and divisiveness, through political privilege and corruption.

Do you remember a time, only a few years ago,  when it didn’t matter to the majority of Americans who you were, what color you were, where you came from and what religion you practiced as long as we were all allowed the same liberties? Today, the political elite and corrupt have grown in power by fostering an environment that has pitted us against each other based on race, religious beliefs, gender, sexual preference and political affiliation.

Do black lives matter? Of course they do. All lives matter. However, the political elite and corrupt will have you believe that racism is not only alive and well within the United States, but that it is a purposeful cancer that no longer has a cure but has metastasized and must be stopped by literally blaming and removing all whites from our sight. The political elite and corrupt have chosen not to turn the other cheek, but to turn the other way while villages are burned and pillaged in the name of racial justice.

Is the United States a nation that welcomes all who wish to practice the religion of their choice freely and without retribution? Yes it is, however, the political elite and corrupt fuel the distrust of the Islamic religion by refusing to name, or fight a radical Islamic army who screams for our death. A President who choses to visit a mosque that supports terrorism and extremism while ignoring the mosques of the very Muslims he claims to protect that have chosen to practice their faith in a peaceful manner. The political elite and corrupt who have chosen to fuel the hate and distrust of the Muslim community while claiming to foster an environment of inclusion and trust. The political elite and corrupt who demand that the very religion upon which this nation was founded, stop publicly displaying and sharing their beliefs within our communities and schools for fear of offending, while promoting diversity through forced Islamic indoctrination and acceptance of a religious doctrine that goes against our very core beliefs. They no longer support the constitution that gives us the right to freely worship the religion of our choosing, but have chosen to pit us against each other, which further fuels the discrimination and hate speech they promise to punish.

The political elite and corrupt claim inequality and the demise of the middle class lays at the feet of a greedy corporate America,  yet have they actually destroyed the free market system by over-regulating, supporting special interests and lobbyists by taking their bribes, and bailing out the corrupt corporations who they have allowed to become to big to fail? Is it the political elite and corrupt who demonize the top one percent and promise to make them pay their fair share, when they actually already pay over 85% of all taxes? Is it the political elite and corrupt who promise to take down the corruption of large corporations while under the table take their cash in exchange for the very political favors that make them too big to fail?

Do the American people support Immigration? Of course they do. However the political elite and corrupt would have the masses believe that we are all bigots and racists because our citizens expect all who come here to support, believe in and respect our flag and the American way. They demonize any American citizen who insists Immigration go hand in hand with the protection of our sovereignty, our economic success, our continued cultural beliefs and rights to liberty without the threat of our individual or collective demise.

It was Teddy Roosevelt who said,

“In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American .”

“We must in every way possible encourage the immigrant to rise, help him up, give him a chance to help himself. If we try to carry him he may well prove not well worth carrying. We must in turn insist upon his showing the same standard of fealty to this country and to join with us in raising the level of our common American citizenship.” 

In this day and age,  the political elite and corrupt have blatantly ignored our immigration laws, opened our borders and forced the American people to pick up the tab for those who come illegally. They offer them homes, education and healthcare,  while denying these same basic needs to our Veterans, our true American heroes,  who have fought and died to support the freedoms we all enjoy. The political elite and corrupt accuse us of being unwelcoming and discriminatory while they fight to allow non citizens to pack our voting booths, diminishing our voices and ensuring their own continued lush lives on the Hill, funded by the very citizens they promised to protect.

The political elite and corrupt have created an environment of polarization and divisiveness because it allows them to take control of a chaotic situation of their own creation. When the United States citizens, regardless of political affiliation,  cheer for those who purposefully deceive us and are committed to fundamentally changing our way of life, while bowing to those who wish us harm, then the American people have lost their way. We the American people, from all races and ethnicities, must stand together as one and recognize that instead of fighting each other we must commit to pointing the finger of blame at those who are truly our enemy….the political elite and corrupt inside our own government.

Obamaman, And His Sidekick Monaco Girl, Out To Thwart Evil At Gitmo?

shutterstock_359560856

Obamaman and his trusty sidekick Monaco girl, the counterterrorism chief, are like a dark superhero duo who are determined to stop the evil United States from imprisoning or extracting information from the pesky terrorists determined to see all of Western civilization dead and buried. Has this awkward duo actually accepted as their mission, the doctrine of the very terrorists they are determined to release back into civilization? Are they set on their path of undermining the greatest nation on earth…the Force for Good?

The current evil doings of terrorism have included the annihilation of any human being; Christian, Muslim, Jew, man, woman or child, who does not embrace their evil ways, by bowing to their twisted will of Allah and the Quran. We have seen innocent human beings beheaded, set on fire, drowned, sold into sexual slavery and slaughtered along with the destruction of homes, villages, religious artifacts and anything that represents God-fearing or law-abiding, civilization. Yet with all these abominable acts of destruction, Obamaman and Monaco girl are determined to protect the rights of these barbarians even if it means the destruction of civilization right here at home in the United States. Although these terrorists do not see the rights of others as a viable option, Obamaman is determined to offer them the very rights they deny others. Although these evil doers would never allow the deniers of the twisted Allah Diety to escape torture or death, Obamaman is determined to release these barbarians and enemies of the globe back into civilization, while demonizing those who dare to extract and unveil their evil plans of destruction. Obamaman and Mococo girl will do whatever is necessary to protect the ever-growing power of the Dark Side.

Obamaman will use his assigned weapons, the pen and the phone, to follow in the footsteps of the enemy he protects….do what you want, regardless of the rule of law, against the wishes of the people, to achieve the final ends…the emasculation and termination of the Force in the spread of democracy around the globe, the purposeful illegal infiltration of evil doers and the continued dismantling of the very Nation that has represented truth, liberty and justice for all.

If Obamaman is unable to complete his mission, he is determined to hand over his weapons of destruction, the nefarious pen and phone, to the next evil doers groomed by the mutated liberal nation of Democrats,  ….Calamitous Clinton and Socialist Sanders….each who have sworn their allegiance to the Dark Side, by lying, corrupting and distorting the truth, breaking the law, demonizing, regulating and obstructing the free enterprise system into oblivion, while distracting the masses with promises of free stuff.

Will the Dark Side be able to complete their mission of fundamentally transforming the Force of Good, or will the Force be able to destroy the cancer of the Dark Side that has been growing by leaps and bounds, fed by Obamaman and his castle of evil transformers?

We must all get out our light sabers and commit to a fight at the polls, as only the elections of 2016 will determine our fate.

Obama Shuts Down Terrorist Investigations Calling It Racial Profiling.

shutterstock_84125155

A former employee of Homeland security is blowing the whistle on Homeland Security. He claims political correctness and the Obama Administration is preventing  Homeland Security from investigating terrorist organizations. Why would political correctness stop the investigation of potential terrorists? This administration calls it profiling and discrimination against Muslims.

In a speech after the San Bernadino attacks, President Obama made a speech citing,

“We cannot turn against one another by letting this fight be defined as a war between America and Islam….If we’re to succeed in defeating terrorism we must enlist Muslim communities as some of our strongest allies, rather than push them away through suspicion and hate….. it is the responsibility of all Americans — of every faith — to reject discrimination.  It is our responsibility to reject religious tests on who we admit into this country.  It’s our responsibility to reject proposals that Muslim Americans should somehow be treated differently.”  

These words from our President sound reasonable. However, when the same administration defies reason by shutting down terrorist investigations by Homeland Security, because he feels it profiles Muslims, then you must ask yourself whether he is acting in the true interest of the United States and it people. Has political correctness taken over common sense and trumped our safety? At what point does the personal feelings of a group of terrorists become less important than the slaughter of innocent Americans going about their daily lives.

In a recent report on the Kelly File, the facts about political correctness and its negative effects into the investigation of radical Islamic terrorism was revealed.

[Philip Haney’s job with HSA was to investigate individuals with suspected radicalized ties to terrorism. He had received a commendation letter for successfully tracking down 300 terrorists. When he noticed a trend of people with radicalized ties coming into the United States, he began looking into a collection of global networks that were infiltrating radical Islamists into the U.S. A year into the investigation, he was visited by the State Department and the Homeland Security Civil Rights Division.  They said tracking these group and individuals was problematic because they were Islamic groups and it was considered profiling. A memo was sent out denying any investigation tied to Islamic groups. As a result, his investigation was shut down.  Sixty seven of his records were deleted. Among those records were investigations into the mosque in San Bernadino which was tied to Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik, responsible for the terrorist attacks in the same city. Haney said if his work had continued he may have been able to thwart the attack in San Bernadino.  A year ago he notified Congress and Department of Homeland Security about these issues, yet the investigation was not re-opened and the HSA retaliated by pulling him from his duties and revoking his security clearance.]

Under the Obama administration, we have seen the dismantling of intelligence in Iraq, an executive order banning CIA “enhanced interrogations” and the closing of “black Sites.  Under the Bush Administration, three suspected terrorsts were waterboarded and as a result divulged information on other terrorists responsible for  the 2002 bombings in Bali and on Al Qaeda leaders. While over 100 prisoners released from Guantanamo Bay have gone back to terrorism, President Obama is still determined to release the remaining prisoners and close Gitmo. Should the United States continue to “play by the rules” when our enemies refuse to do the same?

As all Americans have witnessed of late, President Obama has no problem working up a sweat over the gun rights of American citizens and has promised to pass, by executive order, strict gun laws bypassing Congress and our Constitutional rights. Still at the forefront is the administration’s view that Global warming is our biggest national security threat, and along with Bernie Sanders, and other Democrats actually believe that climate change is the main cause of terrorism today.

The real question is why President Obama has no problems calling out lawful gun owning Americans but still refuses to link self-professed Islamic terrorism to Islam. Now, he has gone so far as to shut down actual successful terrorist investigations because they happen to involve radical Islamic Muslims and calls it profiling. God help us all!

Temporarily Banning Islamic immigration: Politically InCorrect or A Matter of Security?

shutterstock_339907127

Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.  Is this a smart security move or is it just plain politically incorrect as most on the left and the right have spent the last 2 days pontificating?

Trump’s comments have been called un-American, racist and bigoted. However, if radical Islamist extremists are calling for the destruction of the West, should we not be reviewing our immigration policies that are actually legally allowing radicals into our country? Tashfeen Malik, the San Bernadino terrorist,  entered into the United States on a “fiancee” visa in July of 2014, even though later investigations into her background revealed glaring red flags.  Some left leaning publications like the Huffington Post, suggest that terrorists gaining access through the refugee path is highly unlikely, however, the facts remain a stubborn thing.  We know that at least one of the Paris terrorists who killed over 120 people actually entered into the country as a  Syrian refugee while two others carried false Turkish passports.

The actual problem lies in our porous borders, our broken visa program and the seemingly non-existent concern of our leaders as to who has actually entered into the United States. Yet with all these threats constantly being thrown at us, they continue to open the arms of our nation to refugees and an untold number of illegals, ignoring the potential threats that they may pose.

While Trump is supporting the temporary halt of all Muslim refugees and immigrants, and the political elite and their pundits are screaming that this is un-American and un-constitutional, we have to consider the legality of the move.  In a recent column in the Wall Street Journal, James Taranto, says the proposal by Trump is already a Congressional Act, Title 8, Section 1182 of the U.S. Code, which says,

Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or non-immigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.

The article went further in asking whether this temporary ban would violate the First Amendment.  In response they wrote,

“That is a novel legal question; as far as we know Congress has never enacted, nor the executive branch practiced, such an exclusion. But the 1972 case Kleindienst v Mandel strongly suggests the Trump proposal would pass muster.

In the above mentioned case, the Supreme Court ruled that the government has the authority to set immigration policy, at least as applied to nonresident aliens outweighs any free-speech claim an alien may wish to assert.”

In the end, regardless of the responses by Republicans and Democrats, fearing backlash by their parties, the American people seem to be behind the idea of temporarily halting Muslim immigrants and refugees into the United States. After all, it is the American people who are on the front lines, in theatres, at Christmas parties and just going about their lives, waiting for the bombs to go off.

I think common sense is taking hold and temporarily banning Muslim Immigration is strictly a matter of security.

Clearly The Pot Is Calling The Kettle Black!

88aa5a9708fe10faa3529b8420fc07aa

A Federal judge, James E. Shadid, a nominee of the Obama administration and the only Arab Federal judge in Illinois, was lucky enough to draw a case involving religious discrimination against Muslims.

Two Muslim drivers, hired by Star Transport, were fired for refusing  to transport alcohol as part of their job, and as a result were fired. They then sued the company for religious discrimination, supported by the EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission) and won a $240,000 settlement.

The question is not whether they were aware of the fact that Star Transport distributed alcohol, or whether or not there were alternate routes that did not involve alcohol. the real question is why the Obama administration supported this law suit?

We have seen over the past months, Christians persecuted and financially punished for religious objections involving marriage licenses and wedding cakes. When Kim Davis refused to issue marriage licenses to gay couples citing religious beliefs, she was sued by the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) on behalf of all homosexuals. As a result, Judge Steven L. Bunning ordered Davis to issue the marriage licenses, threatening to hold her in contempt resulting in possible jail time and monetary fines. In the end, the court released its opinion, leaving Davis with the option of resigning her office, finding a compromise or being held in contempt of court.

The Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industry awarded $135,ooo to Rachel and Laurel Bowman-Cryer, a lesbian couple, in a law suit filed by them against a Christian mom and pop bakery who refused to bake their wedding cake because of religious beliefs. A Lakewood bakery in Colorado experienced two protests, a Facebook driven boycott and a discrimination complaint from Attorney General Eric Holder , for refusing to bake a cake for a gay couple because of their religious beliefs. This was also followed by the same results in cases in Gortz Haus,  Iowa,  Fleur Cakes in Oregon,  Victoria’s Cake Cottage, Iowa, Masterpeice Cakeshop, Colorado, as well as many others. A Methodist owned event venue in New Jersey lost its state tax exemption and is currently being sued for refusing to host a gay wedding in 2007. Even religious institutions are not allowed to make decisions based on their religious doctrines and beliefs.

In Houston the mayor, Annise Parker, issued subpoenas, demanding a group of pastors turn over any sermons involving homosexuality, gender identity or the fact that she, herself, was a lesbian. If they failed to turn them over, she would hold them in contempt of court.

The Obama administration’s attorney admitted that the “right” to same-sex marriage as determined by the Supreme Court, would result in the loss of tax exempt status of anyone or any religious institution who refuses to acquiesce.

“The tax-exempt status of churches which stick with their traditional beliefs on marriage in the wake of such a ruling won’t be an “issue” for the left. Instead, their elimination will become a goal.” (Tom Blumer @ Newsbusters)

Recently, a flight attendant, Charee Stanley,  who converted to Islam after taking the job, refused to serve alcohol on a flight and was placed on administrative leave, by her employer. In response, Mrs. Stanley said,

“I don’t think that I should have to choose between practicing my religion properly or earning a living,” Stanley said. “I shouldn’t have to choose between one or the other, because they’re both important.”

When comparing the Davis and Stanley cases, we see Kim Davis became and remains the target of attacks and ridicule by Obama, Democrats and the mainstream media all while Mrs. Stanley is celebrated as a victim for hers.

President Obama  recently spoke at a Democratic LGBT gala and made it clear that the United States is a country where religious freedom is embraced and tradition is respected, but at the same time stated,

“We also have to say clearly that our religious freedom doesn’t grant us the freedom to deny our fellow Americans their constitutional rights.”

Has the United States now become a place where ones constitutional rights are realized on the backs of other’s religious rights? Will the Obama administration and Democrats continue to teeter back and forth on the “rule of law,” as it pertains to their agenda?

How can the administration stand up for the religious rights of Muslims while persecuting Christians for their religious beliefs? Obviously, Obama and Democrats have become the pot calling the kettle black!

Obama’s Political Correctness Now Okays Child Rape!

images-2

 

Is this really the United States we were meant to be? I find the path in which we are headed becomes more perverse everyday I read the news.  The latest? A Green Beret is dismissed from the Army because he confronted a child rapist in Afghanistan! Since when does the United States accept the rape of children during war-time an acceptable activity? What if the activity is happening on military bases?

The New York Times published a piece detailing how United States soldiers have been instructed to ignore the sexual rape and abuse of Afghan boys because “it’s their culture.” Soldiers have been told they will be punished and/or discharged for stopping a sexual assault on a child while in Afghanistan.  Charles Martland, a decorated Green Beret was kicked out of Special Forces because he came to the defense of a child and his mother after the boy was raped and the mother beat up for reporting the crime.

As reported in the New York Times piece,

““The reason we were here is because we heard the terrible things the Taliban were doing to people, how they were taking away human rights,” said Dan Quinn, a former Special Forces captain who beat up an American-backed militia commander for keeping a boy chained to his bed as a sex slave. “But we were putting people into power who would do things that were worse than the Taliban did — that was something village elders voiced to me.”

The policy of instructing soldiers to ignore child sexual abuse by their Afghan allies is coming under new scrutiny, particularly as it emerges that service members like Captain Quinn have faced discipline, even career ruin, for disobeying it.

After the beating, the Army relieved Captain Quinn of his command and pulled him from Afghanistan. He has since left the military.”

It has been tough going for troops since President Obama took office. Not only have troops been told to look the other way when children are brutally raped, the Rules of engagement, which were changed and enacted by President Obama in 2009, have been blamed for the increase in casualties, which have more than doubled since the Democrat took office.

It is no accident nor a coincidence that from January 2009 to August of 2010, coinciding with the Obama/McChrystal radical change of the ROE, casualties more than doubled,” Simmons went on. “The carnage will certainly continue as the already fragile and ineffective [rules] have been further weakened by the Obama administration as if they were playground rules.”

A new Congressional report is also showing that the United States is losing the battle against stopping the flow of foreign fighters leaving the US to join ISIS. The report says that  in the last 9 months over 7000 foreign fighters have joined ISIS in their fight with more than 250 Americans joining their ranks as well. What is the administration doing to stop these fighters from being trained by terrorists then returning to the United States? A Congressional task force said,

“The fighters pose “a triple threat,” the group wrote in a summary of its findings: “they strengthen terrorist groups, incite others back home to conduct attacks, and can return themselves to launch acts of terror.””

Because the United States is fighting a war against Islamic terrorism, our government has become more politically correct in regards to Muslims and are now changing our very laws to accommodate them.  New York public schools, funded by taxpayers, will now close their doors in observance of the Muslim Holidays of Eid al-Adha and Eid al-Fitr. New York has been joined by Vermont, Massachusetts, Michigan and New Jersey.

Parents across the country have become outraged at the public school system which has made exceptions for the teaching of Islam within our classrooms.

This has happened while the same public school systems have now opted to eliminate all mention of Christmas and Rash Hashana from school calendars.

President Obama says we must embrace the cultures of Islam here in the United Stares and that the “future does not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.” However, if, as a result,  we must turn our heads at the rape of children because it is just part of their culture….or we must accept the rape and abuse of young girls who are forced to marry before they even reach their teens because it is a part of their culture…if Islam demands the death of gays and the stoning of women…..then I choose not to embrace these cultures.

Why Has Immigration Become Such a Bone Of Contention And Division?

shutterstock_2657890

Back in 2007, while President Obama was busy campaigning to become the first black president of the United States, the majority of Americans were fully in support of immigration reform, and a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants. Flash forward to 2015 and you will see unbelievable levels of contempt and refusal to accept anything less than mass deportation of all illegals. Why?

When President Obama took the oath of office in January of 2009, the House and the Senate of the United States was controlled by the Democrats. Obama campaigned for the hispanic vote by making multiple promises of, not only, addressing immigration, but permanently fixing the problem. He spoke on the issue March 27, 2008 on the Larry King show.

“[We] have to recognize that we’ve got 12 million undocumented workers who are already here. Many of them living their lives alongside other Americans. Their kids are going to school. Many of the kids, in fact, were born in this country and are citizens. And so, it’s absolutely vital that we bring those families out of the shadows and that we give them the opportunity to travel a pathway to citizenship. It’s not automatic citizenship. It’s not amnesty. They would have to pay a fine. They would have to not have engaged in any criminal activity. They would have to learn English. They would have to go to the back of the line so that they did not get citizenship before those persons who had come here legally.”

However, even with a Democratic majority in the House and the Senate, President Obama did nothing to advance immigration reform. He mocked Republicans for demanding the border fence be secured,  and taunted his opposition by accusations that they would soon be demanding  moats and alligators to protect the borders. All this rhetoric while only 37 miles of the fence on the Southern border was actually secured. All this rhetoric while he stood by and did nothing to address reform in his first 2 years as President. As a result of pushing through Obamacare on Christmas eve, against the wishes of the American people, the Democrats lost their majority in the House.  As we all have seen since, without true leadership, immigration reform hit a permanent brick wall.

Instead of leading the discussion with Congress, President Obama decided to take matters into his own hands. Still promising change to the hispanic community in 2012, ensuring his reinstatement as president for another 4 years, immigration reform was once again stalled.  However, in looking at well documented time lines, most Americans were unaware of the president’s actions to ensure that the immigration laws on the books, were ignored and defied.  Obama, along with Eric Holder, of the Department of Justice, moved forward on suing any state that actually followed the rule of law on deporting illegal immigrants, including criminals. He refused to support E-verify, instead defunding the expansion of the program.  He terminated funding for the virtual fence along the border,  approved millions of dollars in tax credits  be paid to illegals immigrants, and routine border searches were stopped. President Obama drastically reduced the number of national guard at the border from thousands to 130. A 24 hour hotline was established for use by illegals while the president’s budget proposed severe cuts in funding to ICE. In 2012, the president bypassed Congress and unilaterally implemented the Dream Act, and announced the closure of nine border patrol stations, while putting into effect an aggressive campaign to recruit illegal immigrants to sign up for welfare and food stamps. In 2013, the Obama administration released thousands of illegal criminals into communities while advertising for babysitters for the surge of illegals over the border in the summer of 2014. Following the surge, millions of taxpayer dollars were spent on charter planes and buses to place un-vetted illegals into schools and communities across the United States.

Meanwhile as the economy continues to tank,  job creation at an all time low, and against the ruling of a federal judge, Obama passes out work permits to illegals like candy, sanctuary cities protect them while their own citizens are being raped and murdered, and Democrats across the country now pursue the passage of laws that allow illegal immigrants to vote in our local and national elections.

Is there any surprise that, as a result of Obama’s private war on legal immigration, that the majority of the American people are angry and demanding all immigrants be deported? This pendulum effect of emotion has been fueled from the beginning by a President who refused to lead the Congress to common sense reform and as a result has pushed the American people to drastic measures to stop the flow of taxpayer dollars, American jobs and unchecked support for those who have entered our country illegally.

The polarization and division of the American people, created and sustained by the current administration has made the problem worse, now amping up hate and discord for anyone crossing the border illegally.

Those in the hispanic community that continue to support Obama and vote for democrats ( basically and action of cutting off your own nose to spite your face) represents the truest definition of an oxymoran. Actions by President Obama and democrats produce incongruous and self-contradictory results in an issue that requires leadership,  and common sense reform.

The push for the destruction of our current immigration laws has done nothing more than create a bone of contention and division within the American people on Immigration reform.

“Will Obama’s Legacy will be World War III”

Untitled-1

 

 

Obama made, yet, another speech yesterday. but what made this one different from the rest? This one will go down in history as the United States’ surrender to terrorism. If we have not been destroyed by nuclear bombs, there is no doubt future generations will be studying this speech and drawing parallels to the Munich Agreement, which is regarded as a failed act of appeasement by Britain and France to Germany and Adolph Hitler, a mistake  which led to the beginning of World War II.

Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, who surrendered the agreement with Hitler claimed,

“My objective is peace in Europe,  this trip is the way to that peace.”

At this meeting, Adolph Hitler deceived, lied and manipulated the British leader into believing that bending to his will would spare Britain and France from a war that were not prepared to fight. During these negotiations, Hitler promised Chamberlain that he would refrain from military action, yet secretly he continued to plan his attack militarily. The sacrifice in this agreement? Czechoslovakia, an ally of Britain and France, abandoned by them to appease Hitler. As Chamberlain proclaimed he had secured “peace in our time,” World War II began.

Is this story beginning to sound familiar? Let’s look at the players in this charade.

Adolph Hitler played by Ali Khamenei, supreme leader of Iran

Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain played by Barack Obama

Czechoslovakia played by Israel.

In his speech yesterday, Obama did make one statement of truth,

“Among U.S. policymakers, there’s never been disagreement on the danger posed by an Iranian nuclear bomb. Democrats and Republicans alike have recognized that it would spark an arms race in the world’s most unstable region and turn every crisis into a potential nuclear showdown. It would embolden terrorist groups like Hezbollah and pose an unacceptable risk to Israel, which Iranian leaders have repeatedly threatened to destroy. More broadly, it could unravel the global commitment to nonproliferation that the world has done so much to defend.”

What about this statement?

“Iran will not enrich uranium…..for at least 15 years.”

There is that 15 year limit again. What happens after 15 years?

“Before Congress even read it, a majority of Republicans declared their virulent opposition. Lobbyists and pundits were suddenly transformed into armchair nuclear scientists…”

This a statement from the community organizer who graduated from Harvard with a degree in Constitutional law but has absolutely no understanding of the Constitution he has continually disregarded. But, he and John Kerry are indeed nuclear scientists.

President Obama further stated that if Republicans were to “repeat these arguments long enough, they would get some traction.”

This is obviously a theory he understands and uses daily…..say it enough and it will become truth. (If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor).

“If there is a reason for inspecting a suspicious undeclared site anywhere in Iran, inspectors can get access with as little as 24 hours”

Now wait for it……wait…..then he says,

“And while the process for resolving a dispute about access can take up to 24 days…we will be watching….”

So there goes the 24 hour claim.

“It is true that some of the limitations regarding Iran’s peaceful program last only 15 years, but that’s how arms control agreements work….”

“It is true that IF Iran lives up to its commitments, it WILL gain access to roughly $56 BILLION of its own money….”

“Our best analysts expect the bulk of this revenue to go into spending that improves the economy and benefits the lives of the Iranian people.”

And I have some swamp land in Florida for sale.

“Now this is not to say that sanctions relief will provide no benefit to Iran’s military. Let’s stipulate that some of that money will flow to activities that we object to.”

“…Iran supports terrorist organizations like Hezbollah. It supports proxy groups that threaten our interests and the interests of our allies, including proxy groups who killed our troops in Iraq.” 

and while Obama strongly pushes this deal he says,

“The truth is that Iran has always found a way to fund these efforts, and whatever benefit Iran my claim from sanctions relief pales in comparison to the danger it could pose with a nuclear weapon.”

If Iran has always found a way to fund its terrorist efforts, why would anyone believe they will agree to stop their pursuit of Nuclear weapons?

“And by the way, such a strategy also helps us effectively confront the immediate and lethal threat posed by ISIL.”

Really? I am confused as to what this has to do with our non strategy on ISIL.

And then the real kicker…

“It’s those hardliners chanting “Death to America” who have been most opposed to the deal. They’re making common cause with the Republican Caucus.”

Did he really just compare Republicans to the Iranians chanting “Death to America?” Is this really the decorum of a sitting President of the Free World? Although we have all become accustomed to his nonstop demonization of one American group or another in every one of his speeches, this takes the cake.

Then the best lie yet….

“….and a more understandable motivation behind the opposition of this deal….a sincere affinity for our friend and ally Israel. An affinity that , as someone who has been a stalwart friend to Israel throughout my career, I deeply share.”

What?  From the man who has racked up a large list of offensive comments and behaviors towards Benjamin Netanyahu, here are just a few.

  • Benjamin Netanyahu was left to stew in a White House meeting room for over an hour after President Barack Obama abruptly walked out of tense talks to have supper with his family.
  • He has taken almost every opportunity to appease Tehran since it came to office, and has been extremely slow to respond to massive human rights violations by the Iranian regime, including the beating, rape and murder of pro-democracy protesters.
  • President Obama condemned Holocaust denial in the Middle East, but compared the murder of six million Jews during World War Two to the “occupation” of the Palestinian territories, in a disturbing example of moral equivalence:
  • In a speech to the UN General Assembly, Obama stated, “America does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlements.” He also lambasted the Israeli “occupation”, and drew a connection between rocket attacks on Israeli civilians with living conditions in Gaza.
  • In an interview, a White House official calls Netanyahu a “chickenshit.”

I would not call this a stalwart friendship with Israel. It has become painfully obvious to most Americans that President Obama no longer supports Israel, our one democratic ally in the middle east, yet has chosen to cuddle up with and appease our enemies.

Can we talk about what Obama did not say in his speech? How about the fact that the United States, with taxpayer dollars, will be offering Iran a $150 BILLION signing bonus? Exactly where is that money coming from? Yes…the U.S. taxpayer.

Back in April of this year, President Obama finally relented, after intense pressure by both Republicans and Democrats alike, to give Congress a voice on the proposed nuclear deal with Iran. The bill, passed in the Senate, requires the President to give Congress 60 days to review the deal and take a vote.

However, Secretary of State John Kerry claims the deal with Iran is NOT a treaty because he feels  getting consent from the U.S. Senate would “become physically impossible.”

When asked by Democrat Brad Sherman (CA), if the White House would comply with the law if the Senate were to override a veto on the deal with Iran, John Kerry replied,

“I will need to consult with President Obama before answering such a question.”

As we have all seen during Obama’s tenure as President, he has refused to follow the rule of law and decided which laws to enforce based on his personal feelings and how it supports his agenda to fundamentally change the United States.

In a step that has become typically Obama style, the president immediately went to the United Nations for a vote on the Iran deal realizing he did not have support from either Democrats or Republicans.  Again, a President who refuses to listen to the will of the people or their representatives in making major decisions that will affect the United States and generations to come. The standard reply? Yes I will follow the rule of law and listen to the representatives of the people as our Constitution demands, unless of course they don’t vote my way.

President Obama has become so determined to define his legacy that he is willing to sacrifice the American people, their children and their grandchildren, regardless of the outcome.

Like Prime Minister Chamberlain in his so-called deal with Hitler, the world suffered the consequences and no doubt, if this deal is forced through by the Obama regime, his legacy will not doubt, be World War III.

Is This Really The Democratic Party You Signed Up For?

 

url

Recently, Debbie Wassermann Shultz, the Chair of the Democratic Committee, was asked the difference between Democrats and Socialists. She was unable to answer the question;  not once, but twice. Why? Could it be that there is no difference?  I can remember a time when any Democrat would have been insulted to be called a socialist. Now there seems to be pride associated with the label. Thousands of Democrats have turned out to support Bernie Sanders for President even though he is a self-professed socialist.

What is a socialism and why has the Democratic party aligned itself with this destructive form of government? Webster’s definition is as follows:

Socialism

noun so·cial·ism \ˈsō-shə-ˌli-zəm\: a way of organizing a society in which major industries are owned and controlled by the government rather than by individual people and companies. Any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods. a system of society or group living in which there is no private property

Are Democrats really lobbying for the government to take complete control of  all businesses and private property?   Are private citizens really considering supporting a candidate that supports socialism for the United States?

As history has proven to us again and again, government is not capable of running a profit-making entity nor successfully choosing those businesses that will succeed. They have tried and continue to try, but have proven over and over to be unsuccessful. The Obama administration gave millions of taxpayer dollars to green companies, though loans and stimulus monies they thought could succeed. As of 2014, 32 have gone bankrupt and taxpayers have lost over $3 billion to the bad choices by government. How can we ever forget the Obamacare website which, alone, has cost taxpayers over $2 billion. A lack of government awareness and acumen has also resulted in the hacking of personal records of millions of Americans, with no end in site, yet they want to take control of all American’s healthcare information and force us into a one payer healthcare system. The embarrassing failures of  the Veterans Administration, the IRS, and other government agencies that have wasted billions of taxpayer dollars  continue to fail and still refuse to fire or reprimand those who approved, caused or encouraged the failures. Add insult to injury, the Obama administration, without any real business success or experience  has already imposed over 21,000 regulations on small business, with more promised to come in 2015.  The majority of which were imposed without the consent or notification to Congress.

Some say Democrats only want the government to care for and give a voice to women, children, the elderly, and those who are incapable of taking care of themselves. But is that who they are truly supporting today?

Let’s look at caring for those without a voice, those who are definitely our most vulnerable citizens of the United States. Babies. Democrats are now supporting the right of mothers to abort their babies up to and including nine months of gestation.  They claim that life does not begin at conception and in fact does not count until the baby is actually  born. However, in a recent interview with Steven Crowder, a political commentator, Abby Johnson, an ex-Planned Parenthood Director  explained  why she left her job and changed her opinion on abortion. She claims that one day, a new doctor wanted to use an ultrasound machine to assist him with the abortion, and asked her to assist him,

“My job with to hold the ultrasound probe on the woman’s abdomen so he could see what was going on during the abortion, and I watched a 13 week old baby fight and struggle for his life during that abortion procedure, and I knew then that I had been lied to. I knew that because of that, I had, in turn, lied to thousands of women who had come through my facility.”

We have seen multiple videos showing Planed Parenthood discussing the dismemberment and sale of aborted baby organs and body parts for profit.  Is this really giving a voice to our most vulnerable citizens? Democrats support a woman’s right to have an abortion though nine months of pregnancy but since when does the law allow anyone to take the life of another human being in order to accommodate their own lifestyle or to simply stamp out what they consider an inconvenience? Even in the light of the atrocities of Planned Parenthood dismembering and selling baby parts for profit, Democrats still refuse to stop taxpayer dollars from flowing freely to an organization steeped in illegal behavior. The Department of Justice refuses to investigate their behavior but instead have decided to investigate the company shining the light on their despicable behavior. When a vote to defund Planned Parenthood was raised in the Senate, every Democrat, except two, voted to continue forced taxpayer funding of this despicable, illegal behavior, claiming it takes healthcare away from women. However, the funding of women’s healthcare still flows freely to every other organizations offering free, and legal healthcare to women who need it.   Harry Reid and Elizabeth Warren accuse Republicans of losing their moral compass and their sanity for objecting to this horrific behavior. Who are these people and do they really  represent the new Democratic party and their new vision the United States?

What about a voice for our Veterans? These men and women have fought, sacrificed their families and their lives to give all Americans the freedoms we enjoy.  Yet the government seems incapable or unwilling to do what is necessary to fix the VA which has abused their power and wasted taxpayer money by refusing to offer the services our Veterans have earned and the lack of said services which have resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of our wounded veterans. Obama and Democrats have fostered an environment within the United States that encourages disrespect and abuse of our veterans.

So who is this new Democratic party truly fighting to support?

They trust  and support Iran on its quest for Nuclear weapons while refusing to trust our own military with carrying weapons on base. even stooping so low as to charge an officer for firing his weapon while trying to  disarm a terrorist in Chattanooga.

They trust and support illegal immigrants, even to the detriment of those who have jumped through all our hoops to become legal citizens. We all know there are good and law-abiding immigrants who have come into the country illegally simply looking for a better life. But how are we to determine who is coming into the country for a better life or who is here to escape prosecution for crimes within their own country, or to sell drugs within the United States or to do us purposeful harm? We can’t. Our borders are porous and our government, under Republican and Democratic rule, have refused to secure our sovereignty. However, under the Obama administration and Democrats, our immigration laws currently on the books are not enforced, and they have threatened those who  follow the rule of law with law suits and the withdrawal of federal funds. They support sanctuary cities that protect criminal illegals who have killed innocent Americans, and continue to  offer up driver’s licenses, homes, education, healthcare and now the vote to illegals all while forcing “we the people” to pickup the tab. Now, a California city is even appointing illegals as city commissioners. Where has the common sense gone.

Democrats and the Obama administration have refused to call out ISIS as Islamic terrorism while persecuting Christians within the United States.  The government has allowed other countries to make their fortunes trading within our borders, while refusing to reciprocate. We have had our economy destroyed, our sovereignty ignored, our jobs killed, our hard-earned dollars stolen and spent against our will, and our freedoms taken. We are required to follow the rule of law all while the political elite refuse to tell the truth, spin the facts to confuse the masses, and under the auspices of security force us to forego our privacy and then force us to pick up the tab.

Is this really the future you want for the United States? Is this truly the Democratic party you signed up for?

United States President Surrendering Flag to Our Enemies!

 

shutterstock_40811836

We have watched President Obama honor plenty of fallen Americans, but the majority of them just happen to be crooks, thieves, illegal aliens or followers of Islam!  What happened to honoring our fallen Military? The men and women who fight for our freedoms. What happened to honoring our fallen citizens? The hard-working Americans who have been killed as a result of our own President’s failed policies or his refusal to follow our rule of law?

President Obama wasted no time in shining the rainbow lights on the White House, at taxpayer’s expense, after the Supreme Court ruled on Gay marriage. Yet crosses around the country are being torn down in the name of political correctness and personal feelings.  The confederate flag has been under attack by the left and the administration as a symbol of hatred, yet symbols celebrating Islam have become more prominent, while Islamic terrorists continue to behead, imprison, drown and burn innocents,while setting dogs on fire, raping young girls, threatening to murder gays, Jews and Christians and laughing while they torture and murder babies and children.  Does Islam not represent hatred and disdain for all citizens of the world? Then why does our President continue to celebrate it?

Not more than 24 hours after 4 Marines were slaughtered by an Islamic terrorist, the Empire State building lights up in celebration of an Islamic Holiday celebration. The end of a Holiday that demands a recommitment to Islam. However, Obama refuses to fly our flag at half mast in honor of the five Americans gunned down by an Islamic Terrorist on US soil.

Obama and Michelle did not hesitate to celebrate and announce their good wishes to all Muslims for a happy Ramadan, within hours of the slaughter of our Marines in Tennessee.

“Michelle and I would like to extend our warmest wishes to Muslims in the United States and around the world celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr. As Muslims mark the end of the month, they are reminded that Ramadan is a time to reflect spiritually, build communally, and aid those in need. While Eid marks the end of Ramadan, it marks a new beginning for each individual — a reason to celebrate and express gratitude on this holiday.”

The Administration also actually postponed the celebration of  the United States Independence Day, our fourth of July, in order not to offend Muslims celebrating Ramadan.

Meanwhile on the holiest day of Christians, Obama, at a prayer breakfast,   reminds us of the brutality of Christians during the Crusades and the issuance of Jim Crow laws in the name of Jesus Christ, while suggesting Christians get off their high horse.

While countries around the world are stepping up in the face of Islamic terrorism and taking action against it, our President continues to make excuses for Islam, refuses to identify them as a source of terrorism,  and will not assist our strongest allies in the fight against ISIS/ISIL.

He disrespects our ally, Israel, while supporting the Islamists, who scream death to Israel and America. He has agreed to a deal with Iran to create Nuclear bombs within our lifetimes making the survival of our children and grandchildren questionable at best. While our representatives consider the consequences of this deal, he pushes it through to the United Nations for approval completely disregarding the wishes and fears of the American citizens who he is supposed to protect.

Since the beginning of his term as President, Obama has not only refused to follow our Constitution or enforce our rule of law, he ignores the death of an American Citizen, Kathryn Steinle, killed by an illegal alien who had been deported five different times. And this as well as thousands of other murders committed by illegal felons, while Obama assures us he has secured our sovereignty mocking Republicans who demand more security.

His administration has become a mockery as he attends funerals and speaks out against our police while supporting criminals, baits protesters to burn down their own cities, invites Al Sharpton to participate in advising him on race relations, yet will not take a moment to offer condolences to the family of a young expectant mother murdered as a result of his own failed policies.

Obama has demanded gun control by taking away the rights of many Americans to own guns through back door legislation, while refusing to enforce the gun laws that are already on our books. Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee are demanding that Obama and the DOJ actually start enforcing the laws that Congress has already enacted before enacting new ones. Obama has actually prosecuted 25 percent fewer cases referred by the law enforcement agency charged with reducing firearms violence.

We have seen our Ambassador and three other Americans killed in Benghazi because of an arms deal gone wrong. No help was sent obviously to help cover up the fact that this administration and Hillary Clinton’s State Department proffered an arms deal with the very people who murdered our Americans. Add insult to injury, they lied and continue to lie in order to cover up their participation in this tragedy.

Let us not forget “Fast and Furious,” The IRS targeting of conservatives, the punishment of whistle blowers, the continued abuse of our Veterans, the NSA spying, and a long list of other atrocities committed by this administration with no consequences.

President Obama, in many speeches has asked Americans to respect people of all faiths, yet like his narrative regarding “white on black” racism, he refuses to acknowledge the atrocities that are committed by blacks against whites or the barbaric murders and atrocities that are advertised daily through social media by the followers of Islam.

Without a doubt, President Obama has fulfilled his promise to those who continue to follow him blindly, refusing to see the evil he continues to perpetrate on his path to fundamentally changing the United States.

Richard Nixon was impeached for much less. Have our morals, ethics and standards fallen so low today that we cannot even acknowledge evil when it is standing proud and tall on the steps of our White House cloaked in our American Flag?

The United States Under Obama: A Criminal Haven For Our Enemies!

shutterstock_175527044

 

President Obama and Secretary of State, John Kerry agreed and signed a deal with Iran. Although just yesterday, Iran citizens and their leader were burning the American flag and shouting death to America and death to Israel. Why would our President and Secretary of State, who are in charge of protecting the American citizens agree to such a bad deal? Because they believe,

“Iran has the right to a peaceful Nuclear program”- John Kerry

We have seen this administration literally slam the only democratic country in the Middle East, and our ally, Israel. Officials in the White House have called Netanyahu a “chickenshit,” used taxpayer dollars to oust Netanyahu out of office, and even refused to meet with him while visiting the United States.  However, while Iran screams death to America and Israel, our fearless leader signs a nuclear deal with Iran that literally sets them up to have Nuclear bombs within 5-15 years.  Nuclear bombs that could literally destroy Israel and the United States and end the very lives of our children and grandchildren.

Back on the home front, the Obama administration has refused to enforce our immigration laws and as a result, taxpayers on the hook for homes, food, education, and healthcare for all illegals and their families residing in the United States. Our school system is overcrowded, communities have exceeded budget constraints and are going broke trying to educate and pay for the millions of dollars required to house and educate illegals within our communities.  Local governments were never consulted before planes, trains and automobiles rolled into their towns releasing illegals into their communities. All under the blanket of protection of President Obama.

This administration has also released hundreds of thousands of illegal criminals back into our communities with devastating results. Thousands of Americans have been killed because of the release of these criminals. The most recent being Kate Steinle, 31 and an expectant mother was gunned down by an illegal immigrant felon who had been deported 6 times for criminal behavior. A 13 year old girl was kidnapped and sexually assaulted by an  illegal in Florida. Sabine Durden’s son Dominic was killed by a drunk driver, also an illegal alien. The families of Jamiel Shaw Jr., Don Rosenberg, Lupe Moreno, and Brenda Sparks, are just a few of the other families that have lost loved ones because of the actions of illegals in the United States.  Yet President Obama has remained silent about these deaths all while stepping up to the plate and attending funerals of criminals killed by police, hyped up by the press as white on black hate crimes.

Obama wasted no time holding a press conference claiming Treyvon Martin could have been his son before the trial had even begun in the Zimmerman case. He wasted no time in sending three White House officials to attend Michael Brown’s funeral, who was killed while trying to take a police officer’s gun after attempting to rob a convenient store. That was three more than were sent to attend former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher’s funeral last year and none were sent to the funeral for Maj. Gen. Harold Greene, the highest-ranking U.S. military officer killed in combat since the Vietnam War.  The Obama administration devoted considerable resources to the Michael Brown shooting and sent Attorney General Eric Holder to Ferguson, as well as dozens of investigators prior to any of the facts being revealed. However, the Obama administration refuses to comment or offer condolences to the family of  Kathryn Steinle, whose death was a direct result of Obama’s refusal to enforce United States deportation laws.  Although the White House claims it does not have the time to comment on all victims of crimes, Obama found ample time to meet with four convicted drug felons in order to support his release of 45 prisoners. And let us not forget the phone call he made to Sandra Fluke to make sure she was okay after negative comments were made regarding her snit fit over a Catholic University refusing to pay for her birth control.

How can any of us forget President Obama’s condescending comments about Republicans who were demanding our border be secure? President Barack Obama noted the steps taken by his administration to strengthen border security, but said Republicans in Congress were never satisfied and mocked that they will want a “higher fence” and then “a moat,” and then “alligators in the moat.”They’ll never be satisfied. And I understand that. That’s politics.”

However, if our borders were, in fact, secure, as Obama claims, how did all these convicted felons return to the United States after being deported time after time after time? Now add insult to injury, Democrats are pushing to not only give driver’s licenses to illegals but the right to vote in our local and national elections. Are the lives of American citizens really expendable in order for Democrats to gain more votes?

At what point will the President of the United States start  taking the necessary steps to protect the citizens of the United States, and our sovereignty? At what point will our Congress take the necessary steps to stop the actions of Obama while he does everything within his power to protect, support and empower our enemies?

Marriage: A Ceremony Complicated By Government Interference

shutterstock_130862363The Supreme Court has ruled that gay marriage is the new norm.  But the real question is, should the government have any say in what constitutes marriage at all? What if there was a way to stop the controversy? What if we took government out of the business of marriage completely?

We have seen, over the past 6 years, government remove any signs of “Faith” from our schools, our government offices, our memorials, our military and our foreign policy.  But why then, are we allowing the government to make a decision about what most believe is a religious ceremony?

How can a government who claims to support the “freedom of religion,” threaten to take away tax exempt status and any and all government benefits due under the law, because religious beliefs don’t align with the government’s new regulations or interpretations of the law? Are we now going to allow our government to define and regulate our religious doctrines? Hillary Clinton and President Obama have both suggested that religious organizations and believers need to change their views regarding marriage and abortion. However, they don’t seem to understand that our religious beliefs come from God not the government and therefore cannot be regulated or mandated.

How did the government get involved in marriage in the first place?  In an article by Stephanie Coontz, titled “Taking Marriage Private,” she says,

The American colonies officially required marriages to be registered, but until the mid-19th century, state supreme courts routinely ruled that public cohabitation was sufficient evidence of a valid marriage. By the later part of that century, however, the United States began to nullify common-law marriages and exert more control over who was allowed to marry.

By the 1920s, 38 states prohibited whites from marrying blacks, “mulattos,” Japanese, Chinese, Indians, “Mongolians,” “Malays” or Filipinos. Twelve states would not issue a marriage license if one partner was a drunk, an addict or a “mental defect.” Eighteen states set barriers to remarriage after divorce.

In the mid-20th century, governments began to get out of the business of deciding which couples were “fit” to marry. Courts invalidated laws against interracial marriage, struck down other barriers and even extended marriage rights to prisoners. But governments began relying on marriage licenses for a new purpose: as a way of distributing resources to dependents. The Social Security Act provided survivors’ benefits with proof of marriage. Employers used marital status to determine whether they would provide health insurance or pension benefits to employees’ dependents. Courts and hospitals required a marriage license before granting couples the privilege of inheriting from each other or receiving medical information.

So in history, marriage was not a complicated thing, until Uncle Sam decided to regulate it.

The word marriage should be replaced with “unions,” in the eyes of the government. Unions between two people who want to spend their lives together. Ceremonies then are chosen based on personal or religious beliefs and/or preferences. No ones belief system trampled or punished.

Today, some “relationships,” may have nothing to do with a life long commitment, love, or even children, but a necessity of life. In order for the government to keep track of unions for beneficiary information, why not apply for a “benefit distribution license.” All Americans would then have the right to determine who can and will receive the benefits they have worked for and earned, without complicated regulation by the government. Whether it be a husband, wife, sister, brother, cousin or friend. As we have all seen, the more government becomes involved the more complicated it becomes and the more regulations it requires.  Therein lies the problem…government interference.

Government cannot continue to step on the rights and beliefs of others while enforcing laws that they conveniently  label as “tolerance,” when it is anything but tolerant. Those who believe in gay “marriage” cannot force those who believe in traditional marriage to perform gay marriage ceremonies, and a right to a union of your choice should not morph into a mechanism to destroy those who believe differently.  How can anyone who has fought for their rights be content to strip others of their rights in order to realize their own?  Ben Carson asked a very relevant question,

“What position can a person take who has absolutely no animosity toward gay people but believes in traditional marriage that would be satisfactory to them?”

My answer would be to take government out of the equation and offer up “Civil Unions,” “Free Choice” and “Benefit Distribution Licenses.”

The Chains of Government Strengthens as our Morality Weakens”

imgres

 

“Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters.”- Benjamin Franklin

What has happened to the United States? Many say that it is a natural progression that is inevitable, but is it actually the breakdown of our morals, our ethics, our family structure and our school systems? Is it the inevitable “chains of government,” that have slowly but surely bound us with the very freedoms we claim to embrace?

In the name of progression, we have thrown out the very things that made this country great. Our leaders have shunned the very thought that the United States is a Christian Nation and our freedoms are slowly being taken from us on a daily basis. Government of the people, by the people, for the people, exists no more!  We are now being ruled by the political elite who have adopted  “political correctness,” as the new rule of law.

Writer Malcomb Muggeridge (one time editor of Punch magazine) wrote,

“It is difficult to resist the conclusion that 20th century man has decided to abolish himself . Tired of the struggle to be himself he has created boredom out of his own affluence, impotence out of his own erotomania, and vulnerability out of his own strength, He himself  blows the trumpet that brings the walls of his own cities crashing down until at last having educated himself into imbecility, having drugged and polluted himself into stupefaction, he keels over, a weary old brontosaurus, and becomes extinct.”

In a recent speech, Christian apologist, Ravi Zacharias,  speaks of the progressive movement and secularism.

“It proclaims the gospel [bible], as the last hoorah of an antiquated outlook, to a generation who is intellectually unkept, morally unzipped and volitionally uncurbed. They reveal their sickness of soul by derogating terms like morality, piety, family, work, patriotism, born again, theology , evangelical and christianity. They dismiss [the bible] as middle class hedonism, declaring it intellectually inadmissible while meanwhile, they espouse a life that neither reason nor conscious nor spirit can support or condone……”

Is Christianity so intimidating that our government must stop it at all costs? Why does the progressive movement so determined to redefine our morals and replace them with a sense of self-importance with no sense of shame or responsibility? Is the United States truly a autonomous culture? Do we really respect the right of everyone to believe as they choose? Live and let live? Although we pride ourselves as being autonomous,  has it become a bait and switch society?  We are told that we have freedom of religion and freedom of speech, however, the moment our views do not fit the dialogue taught by the progressives, we are forced, through new government laws and regulations, to change our beliefs. If we are truly an autonomous culture, we must be mutually respectful and civil towards others views and life choices.  However, we are now at the mercy of political correctness which is quickly becoming forced integration.

Recently, Fairfax county in Virginia voted to allow transgender bathrooms in our schools and our communities. This is becoming the norm in cities and states across our nation. Is this progression, or does this fall under the definition of a free society? If an individual has been born with the desire to be a different gender, should we force society to acquiesce to that need? Should our government decide at what age our children should, learn about, experience and accept the definition of transgender? Does this infringe on the freedoms of parents to make a decision regarding the age appropriateness of the subject? Have we taken “freedom” too far? If you choose a lifestyle, you are free to live it. However, should we force everyone to accept it and embrace it?  This is where our society has taken a turn away from common sense. Must we now label bathrooms with every sexual preference regardless of how it infringes on other’s rights?  Will they be labeling bathrooms with a long list of those who are allowed to enter at their own risk? What happened to the simplicity of “Men” and “Women” bathroom signs, and allowing the individual to decide which applies to them? Why must we label every sexual preference on our bathrooms and then force society to embrace it? What is next?

Should we rule that pedophilia is no longer a sexual deviation, but sexual liberation? Believe it or not, progressives are actually debating this issue as we speak.

In an article by The Guardian, “Pedophilia: bringing dark desires to light,” it says,

“The reclassification of pedophilia as a sexual orientation would, however, play into what Goode calls “the sexual liberation discourse”, which has existed since the 1970s. “There are a lot of people,” she says, “who say: we outlawed homosexuality, and we were wrong. Perhaps we’re wrong about pedophilia.”

The United States is a country founded on freedoms. However, have we taken leave of our senses? Have we taken “political correctness” to a level that we must allow, accept and embrace any and all behavior, no matter the deviation from the norm? Under the new progressive movement, must we allow babies to be ripped from their mother’s wombs up to and including 9 months of gestation, in order to allow freedom of choice for women?  Must we educate our young children on the different sexual lifestyles; heterosexuality, homosexuality, bi-sexuality, pedophilia, bestiality, through the public school system, in the name of sexual freedom?  Must we embrace the destruction, looting, burning and violence that comes with protests in order to support the freedom of speech? Must we point the finger of blame for the sins of the past, demand restitution while enduring reverse discrimination in the name of equal rights? Must we quiet the voices of Christianity, while lifting up Islamic extremism, in the name of religious freedom? Must we, not only welcome, and pay for illegals but allow them a voice in our elections in the name of voter rights? Must we accept the NSA into our bedrooms, homes, computers, bank accounts, phone calls and every aspect of our personal lives in the name of national security? Must we accept the audits and persecution of the IRS when our political beliefs and voices go against the beliefs of the political elite? Must we all follow the dietary rule of law set by government because they say we simply do not know better? Must we allow the political elite to indoctrinate our children through a government controlled education system that will ensure the decline of our competitive standing in the world and the continued control of the masses? How long can we continue to allow our constitutional republic to be turned into a tyrannical system of government? If  Tyranny is defined as that which is legal for the government but illegal for the citizenry, then we are seeing our country fundamentally changed against our will every day.

Must we accept the mutilation of our constitution and accept lies and deceit in place of truth all in the name of politics and power? Must we accept that we are no longer the electorate and the elected, but the ruling and the ruled? It is time to stand up and break the chains of government that have bound us all and get back to the basics on which this country was founded. Family, hard work, an understanding of right and wrong, and common sense freedoms that were intended by our Founding fathers.

“When secularism has evicted everything that is sacred and made a free for all grab for sensation and feeling alone it will ultimately irradiate a feeling of shame in a culture. Shame is a desperately needed sensation when things are wrong deep within you. Show me a man or a woman or a culture without shame and I will show you monstrosity in the making. If secularism leads to a society without shame, society cannot survive.”- Ravi Zacharias

‘If chance be the father of all flesh, disaster is his rainbow in the sky. And when you hear a state of emergency…. sniper kills, youths go looting, bomb blasts school…. it is but the sound of man worshipping his maker.”-Steve Turner.

What Does History Tell Us About Slavery And Racism?

org_pop_topred

Which political party really supported slavery and continue to further the cause of racism?  Most people will immediately point their finger at Republicans and Conservatives.  You know those evil old white folks who would rather see you encased in chains than an actual contributing citizen of the United States? Well if you believe this, then I have some swamp land in Florida I need to sell. If you look at  history, it will definitely prove you wrong.

Founded in 1866, the Ku Klux Klan was committed to the violent intimidation of blacks, Republicans and northerners.  It was a group that was established by Democrats to fight against the political and economic freedoms for blacks.  The first leader of the KKK was Nathan Bedford Forrest, a Democrat, who made his fortune as a cotton planter and a slave trader. He later fought in the civil war to protect his right to own slaves and was well-known for the Fort Pillow Massacre in 1864.  Forrest marched 1500-2500 troops to take over Ft. Pillow which was being guarded by about 600 Union soldiers, half of them black. When his confederate soldiers took the fort, the Union soldiers surrendered and instead of  taking them as prisoners, Forrest massacred all 300 black soldiers.  After the war ended, Forrest resisted the Reconstruction and became the first Grand Wizard of the KKK.

President Lincoln’s Republican victory for President, led to the addition of the Thirteenth, Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments to the Constitution which called for the “utter and complete destruction” of slavery, and granted blacks freedom, citizenship and the right to vote. The Democratic party called for the restoration of State’s rights which would have given each state the right to enforce slavery if they saw fit.  As a result, Democrats started the KKK in a resistance measure against Reconstruction.

Why was the NAACP founded? In 1905, a group of thirty-two prominent African-American leaders met to discuss the challenges facing people of color and possible strategies and solutions.  Through the early 1900s, legislatures dominated by white Democrats ratified new constitutions and laws creating barriers to voter registration and more complex election rules. Black voter registration and turnout dropped markedly in the South as a result. Men who had been voting for thirty years in the South were told they did not “qualify” to register. As a result the Niagara Movement began and years later, 7 of the members joined the board of the NAACP. The NAACP spent a decade seeking federal legislation against lynching. However, Southern Democrats voted as a block against it or used the filibuster in the Senate to block its passage.  Southern states, at the time, were dominated by Democrats. They created “white only” primaries to block blacks from the political process.

Franklin Roosevelt was the Democratic President of the U.S from 1933-1945.  While in office, Roosevelt refused to support the Costigan-Wagner Anti-Lynching Bill that would have punished sheriffs who failed to protect their prisoners from lynch mobs. Even after the lynching of Rubin Stacy in 1935, which drew National attention, Roosevelt refused to budge. Why? He was afraid of the political ramifications to his career.

In 1958, it was the Republican party and President Dwight Eisenhower who sent troops to Arkansas to desegregate schools. He also established the Civil Rights Commission and appointed Chief Justice Earl Warren to the Supreme Court which resulted in the 1954 Brown v. Board of Education decision ending school segregation.

In 1964, the Civil Rights Act was finally passed under Lyndon Johnson, with a Republican majority.  LBJ asked Republican Senator Dirksen, the Senate minority leader to assist him in passing the bill, and as a result Dirksen played a pivotal role in the passage of the Act.  Prior to his assassination,  President Kennedy called the congressional leaders to the White House in 1963 to line up votes for the bill’s passage. A Democrat and avid segregationist from Virginia, Howard W. Smith,  indicated his intention to keep the bill bottled up indefinitely. When taking office for Kennedy, President Johnson asked for support from his friend and mentor Senator Richard Russell, who refused. A Democrat from Georgia, and the leader of the Southern Democrats in the Senate, Russell and his followers continued to oppose the civil rights bill to the very end. The final vote was 72-18. Republicans had the majority of the “yeas” and all the ‘nays, came from Democrats. If it had fallen on the shoulders of  Democrats alone to pass the Civil Rights Act of 1964, it never would have passed.

Even Congressman Jessie Jackson Jr, former Democratic Congressman and African-American,  explained in an interview with Angela McGlowan on her book “Bamboozled,” that the Democrats were the party of segregation and said,

“There is no doubt that the Democratic Party is the party of the Confederacy, historically, that the Democratic Party’s flag is the Confederate flag.  It was our party’s flag.  That Jefferson Davis was a Democrat, that Stonewall Jackson strongly identified with the Democratic Party, that secessionists in the South saw themselves as Democrats and were Democrats.  That so much of the Democratic Party’s history, since it is our nation’s oldest political party, has its roots in slavery.”

Now, lets talk about the Jim Crow laws. In 1885 a southern black journalist, T. McCants Stewart said,

“I can stop in and drink a glass of soda and be more politely waited upon than in some parts of New England.” 

Why?

The Republicans had passed amendments to the Constitution that had given blacks the vote, citizenship and equal protection under the law. However  a national Democratic party compromise to gain Southern support for the presidential election resulted in the government withdrawing federal troops from the South returning it to white rule. As the Republican party had fallen from national power, blacks would lose all the rights they had gained and their rights and freedoms would be made illegal through Jim Crow laws, passed by Southern, white Democrats.

Based on so much history in supporting slavery and Jim Crow laws, why do Democrats continue to win 95% of the black vote?  Stephen A. Smith recommends,

“For one election, just one, every black person in America vote Republican.”

Why not? The majority of blacks have been voting for Democrats and have seen no improvements in their lives.  The statistics speak for themselves. President Obama’s approval ratings remains high within the black community, however, his policies have hurt them dramatically. The U.S labor force participation rate for blacks is currently at 61% and for black teenagers, it is 25.7%. The unemployment rate for black adults is over 10% and for teenagers is at 25%. The percentage of blacks below the poverty rate has also increased under Obama at 27.2%, and household incomes have fallen to $34,598. Home ownership has fallen and food stamp recipients have risen from 7.4 million to 12.2 million between 2008 and 2013 under Obama.

A black activist, Alfonzo Rachel explains in his recent video, where he speaks to the black community, why the Democrats are the party of slavery and victimization,

“You do realize that slavery was abolished like 150 years ago? Yet your mind is still in the fields, a place where you have never been. Yet you want to stay brain chained to a place where Democrats wanted to keep you and still want to keep you. You think the Democrats have changed and that Republicans are not the party of Lincoln anymore.  Democrats haven’t changed. They still want you to be dependent on the master and there still dependent on you, but now instead of using blacks to farm cotton they now use you to farm votes. And you have been suckered into believing that this off-balance circle of dependency is Democrats doing something for black folks. If Democrats do so much for you, why are you still so angry? Why are you still saying we shall overcome as if it hasn’t already  happened. I will tell you why  overcoming hasn’t happened for you, because you have been suckered into voting for the party that you were supposed to overcome.”

I think Stephen A. Smith’s recommendation makes sense. If blacks lives have not improved under Democratic rule, then why not make a change? Why not take a chance and try a vote for a Republican. You might be surprised.

“Democrats Push Voting Rights For Non-Citizens To Ensure Election Wins!”

imgres

President Obama in a recent interview, admitted that he would pass his agenda items by “hook or by crook.” Was he just waving the green flag to all Democrats to do whatever is necessary to win and in turn, further the liberal agenda? This seems to be the new platform for the Democrats.  If you can’t accomplish it on your own steam and through the proper channels, then lie, cheat, and steal to get it done. By “hook or by crook!”

Mayor Bill DeBlasio, Mayor of New York, has decided the only way he has a chance at gaining a second term in New York, is to allow non-citizens the ability to cast votes in New York elections.  A move that takes the voice away from “The People,” as laid out in our Constitution, and gives it to those who are here as guests in our country.  Add in a growing number of illegal voters casting fraudulent ballots at local and national elections, and the American people will no longer have a say in how we are governed.  As we look at DeBlasio’s first term in office we cannot help but remember back in 2014 when he blocked charter schools,  using space inside failed public school buildings.  He chose to support teachers unions over what was best for the kids of New York. DeBlasio also proposed a law that would end horse-drawn carriages in the city and in turn force 300 drivers from their jobs at a time when the economy was less than optimistic. Add in his termination of the “stop and frisk,” laws and his vocal condemnation of his own police force, during the Michael Brown case, prior to proper investigations and rulings by the court system, and the people of New York were less than pleased. His current odds at winning a second term are not promising. His best path to win the next election seems to be opening up the voting booths to anyone and everyone who might cast a ballot for him and the Democratic party.   We do know the majority of  non-citizens will cast their ballot for a Democrat, because of course, they will never bite the hand that feeds them.

Hillary Clinton, Democrat, who wrote her thesis in college on Saul Allinsky’s “Rules for Radicals”, has found herself in yet another pot of hot water over her “deleted” email server used during her entire tenure as Secretary of State.She has no real accomplishments as Secretary of State to speak of, except her “restart” button with Russia, which obviously didn’t work, and the chaos that has been created around the world by her and President Obama’s failed agenda.  She will use her gender as a voting tool, however, she will have to explain why the Clinton Foundation has taken millions of dollars in donations from countries that have allowed the horrible abuses of women. She says she is running on income inequality while she charges $250,000 for speeches at Universities while “demanding crudités, hummus and sliced fruit.” Despite a lifetime career in politics and constant questionable illegal activities, she has decided to throw her hat into the ring for President of the United States in 2016.

It has become a pattern that seems to have gained popularity within the Democratic party. Lie. Cheat. Steal. Deceive. Deflect. Ignore. Do whatever is necessary to keep your job, win a seat, or warp the voting process in your favor. And in the process, pass legislation that will allow all non-citizens as well as illegals to cast their ballot in the next election so they can vote for Democrats.

The bill proposed in New York that will allow non-citizens to vote in local elections that has also found its way to Washington, DC,  The Local Resident Voting Rights Amendment Act of 2015.  As reported in the weekly Standard,

“If the bill passes, it would not make D.C. the first to have allowed non-citizens to vote in local elections. Currently, half a dozen towns or jurisdictions in Maryland, including Takoma Park, allow the practice, while Chicago allows all (presumably legal) residents to vote in school board elections. In much the same vein, non-citizens in California now have the right to act as poll monitors, to practice law (even if an illegal alien), and also to serve on juries.”

Last summer the United States saw an unprecedented “rush” on our southern borders.  The Obama administration’s pattern of hindering our current deportation laws, has layed out the red carpet for illegals to freely enter into the United States.  The majority of these illegals, who crossed the border were not deported, but transported via plane and charter bus, at taxpayer’s expense, throughout communities within the country. They were then given roofs over their heads, food, healthcare, and then placed within public schools without vaccinations, putting American citizens at risk. They have been offered driver’s licenses, and the right to work within the country without fear of deportation. Illegals are now even protesting without fear of retribution demanding even more money, more rights and more services. Current reports are already predicting a repeat of another surge this coming summer. When will it stop? Never, as long as Democrats rule the roost.

What has been done by this administration since 2008 to correct the problems at the border?  Nothing. With endless open borders, and public services offered up like al a carte menus to illegals within the country as well as those looking to come in the future, the taxpayers will not only be looking to forego more hard-earned dollars, but their constitutional right to choose our leaders. Even the IRS has gotten in on the ruse by offering billions of dollars in tax credits to illegals that have never even worked.

There has recently been a growing pushback from Americans fighting the influx of foreign workers via the H1-B visa program. Companies are ousting American workers to fill  jobs with cheaper, lower level workers currently held by more expensive American workers. The Obama administration is pushing to allow nearly 100,000 spouses of foreign workers in high-tech jobs and want to further ease restrictions  making it easier to import high skilled workers from foreign countries. These policies will further hinder the job market for American citizens. President Obama and Democrats have decided to cater to anyone and everyone except Americans. It seems as though they have forgotten their place and the people they have been elected to serve.

It is time to bring back simple common sense and logic to our country. It is time to put Americans first!

Meanwhile back on the Homefront……Crooks, Fraud, Liars and Thieves!

shutterstock_146004131 (1)

 

While the news has taken flight over the entire Iran nuclear arms disaster and Obama’s petulant tantrums regarding Bibi Netanyahu, the public’s attention has been pulled away from the continued fraud and deceit going on around us here on the Homefront, directly under our noses!

Ever since Obama took office, we have woken up every morning to a new scandal, a new lie, new corruption and the audacity of this government to, not only, allow it to happen, but encourage it, hire it, give it power, and refuse to fire it or punish it. Meanwhile this same government continues to put the American people under a microscope and demand we follow the very rules they refuse to acknowledge or follow themselves.

Although the majority of the public seems to be outraged at the continued bad behavior of our president, vice president, secretary of state, attorney general, and a host of other “political” appointees and politicians, they  continue to vote them into office.  As the scandals continue to break, and we discover that our tax dollars have been wasted and spent haphazardly, and those we elected are never held accountable, they wonder why. It is time to hold our elected and appointed political officials responsible for their bad behavior and demand that they pay the same price Americans are expected to pay when they break the law. We can no longer look the other way while our government is inundated with crooks, frauds  liars and thieves.

Just this morning alone, we were told of a scandal that came up during the Virginia Governor’s race which the citizens of Virginia decided to ignore. Despite multiple investigations going on for fraudulent behavior, Terry McAuliffe was elected Governor of Virginia. Now, the same scandal is raising its ugly head again! What ever happened to it in the first place? How can the American people allow our governing officials to get caught breaking the law and then allow it to quietly be swept under the rug and forgotten because of an election?  Scandal after scandal after scandal…that’s how.  If you get caught, just find something worse and the first act of deceit will be forgotten until the scandals and the lies have become mainstream and the “rule” instead of the “exception.” The next thing you know, it is out of control and the seemingly only way to deal with all the crooks, fraud, liars and thieves is to fire everyone in government and start over. Yet we know this will never happen, so we are forced to suffer the consequences of being ruled by crooks, fraud, liars and thieves.

So what deceit by government has raised its ugly head today?

  • Deceit number 1– Deputy Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, was appointed by Obama even though he was under investigation for other immigration decisions that might have been against the law.
  • Deceit number 2. The Obama appointee, Mayorkas,  caves to pressure from Hillary Clinton, Terry McAuliffe,  Harry Reid and Edward G. Rendell and decides to approve immigration applications from wealthy foreigners that were directly connected to these top government officials. Approvals that go against the very  laws he was appointed to protect and enforce.
  • Deceit number 3.  Mayorkas then proceeds to approve applications for these individuals that have huge effects on the outcome of events that otherwise would have ended differently.
  • Deceit number 4.  Mayorkas files a rebuttal saying he was only trying to fix a bad immigration policy on his own.
  • Deceit number 5.  Approved visas numbered 1,000 a year and under Obama have grown to 11,000 per year, yet no one thinks this is unusual?
  • Deceit number 6. Whistleblowers at all levels came forward to file complaints and are seemingly ignored or punished.
  • Deceit number 7.  Mayorkas denies dealing with McAuliffe, Rendall and Reid, yet the records show he did.
  • Deceit number 8.  When McAuliffe and others are approached, they refuse to speak to investigators.
  • Deceit number 9.  The investigators then find problems with HSA records retention as we have  seen with the IRS, the EPA, and Hillary Clinton’s State Department.
  • Deceit number 10.  When it is demanded that Obama and Holder punish the  Deputy HSA official,  the powers at be say ‘No,” because Mayorkas is really “honest and patriotic.”
  • Deceit number 11.  The same officials are elected into office.

Do you see a pattern here? This happens day after day. Scandal after scandal.  Time and time again, we see reports of crooks, fraud, liars and thieves, yet they are elected into office again, disgrace themselves and the office they hold, refuse to hold themselves accountable, and are once again voted right back into office.

Could it be that our choices are limited? So many good and honest people refuse to even think about running for office because they know that the mainstream media will lie and distort the truth.  A biased, opinionated press who will do anything to protect the left-wing liberal agenda, including ruining the lives and destroying the reputations of anyone who dare challenge them or their Commander and Chief, Obama.

Take the example of  Ted Cruz announcing his candidacy for President. Like him or not, support him or not,  is it appropriate for the press, who is supposed to inform the electorate, to destroy him with their personal political feelings within hours of his announcement? Is this what we have come to under the influence of the  left-wing, liberal policies and behavior?  The very agenda that denounces intolerance, yet continues to promote the very hate and intolerance of others they claim to denounce? The very behavior that is being taught in our education system, ensuring the demise of the very freedoms and liberties this country was founded on. An agenda of hate for the United States and the very people that have given their lives in order to offer us these freedoms? Is this the future of the United States of America?

Isn’t it time for the American people to demand change? No more intolerance and personal political agendas in the press. No more crooks, fraud, liars and thieves allowed in government office. It is time for those who break the laws and trust of the American people to be held accountable for their criminal actions and forced to suffer the consequences of their actions as “we the people” are expected to do!

Taxpayer Dollars Allegedly Misused by Obama Administration to Oust Netanyahu!

shutterstock_230786908 (1)We all know that the Obama Administration has never been a cheerleader for Benjamin Netanyahu or Israel.  However, when the majority of the United States population support Israel and its Prime Minister, and we want Senate approval of the Iran Nuclear deal, shouldn’t the White House follow the wishes of the people? Are we still a government of the people, by the people and for the people, or have we become a country of Obama, by Obama and for Obama?

It was recently discovered that the Obama Administration allegedly used $350,000 taxpayer dollars to help oust Netanyahu from office in the current election.  Is this the action of  a leader that is following the wishes of the people, or the action of a President who is fulfilling a high school level payback to a real leader, Netanyahu, who the American people love and support? As reported by Fox News,

“A powerful U.S. Senate investigatory committee has launched a bipartisan probe into an American nonprofit’s funding of efforts to oust Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu after the Obama administration’s State Department gave the nonprofit taxpayer-funded grants, a source with knowledge of the panel’s activities told FoxNews.com . . .

According to the source, the probe is looking into “funding” by OneVoice Movement – a Washington-based group that has received $350,000 in recent State Department grants, and until last November was headed by a veteran diplomat from the Clinton administrations.”

Jeremy Bird, who served as Obama’s campaign National field director in 2012,  is one of four U.S. consultants working with Tele Aviv based Victory 2015 or V15, to oust Benjamin Netanyahu from office. He has been described by Israeli newspapers as V15’s “secret campaign weapon.”  V15 says it supports no particular candidate, but want to replace Netanyahu. V15 is funded by an organization called OneVoice. Bird told Haaretz,

“Israel is ideal for door-to-door campaigning due to the small size of the country. Because of the large number of political parties and high voter turnout, he believes it’s possible to talk with enough people to change the government.”

The United States citizens are painfully aware of the current administration’s feelings about Benjamin Netanyahu.  Back in 2011, President Obama was caught on a hot mike along with French President Nicolas Sarkozy, complaining about Netanyahu. As reported in ABC News,

“Obama began by reproaching Sarkozy for not warning him in advance that France would vote in favor of Palestinian membership of  UNESCO,” “The conversation turned to Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, with Sarkozy saying ,’I don’t want to see him anymore, he’s a liar.’ “To which President Obama replied: ‘You’ve had enough of him, but I have to deal with him every day!’ Obama then asked Sarkozy to try  to convince the Palestinians to slow down with their UN membership drive.

In October of 2014, 

“A senior Obama administration official recently described the Israeli prime minister as “chickenshit,” according to Jeffrey Goldberg of  The Atlantic. The list also includes descriptions such as “recalcitrant, myopic, reactionary, obtuse, blustering, pompous, and ‘Aspergery,’ ” according to Goldberg.”

In an article by Randy Hall at Newsbusters, John Nolte, editor-at-large of the breitbart.com website, stated,

“Despite months of relentless attacks coming from president Obama, his White House and his sycophants in the mainstream media, here in America, Benjamin Netanyahu has seen a boost in his favorability rating.”

“Netanyahu’s jump in approval is a massive failure for a mainstream media that has red-lined in its attempts to derail Netanyahu’s much-anticipated Tuesday speech.”

“The very same media that champions Obama’s lawless crusades around Congress is now comically furious over a breach of diplomatic protocol that saw House Speaker John Boehner invite Netanyahu to speak without first alerting  … a president who his currently writing the laws he wants and violating his Constitutional oath by refusing to enforce those he doesn’t.”

The reason for all the hate coming from the White House?  President Obama has continued to go around Congress in working a deal with Iran, that will supposedly prevent them from obtaining nuclear weapons.  Although the White House denied in October that  it planned to go around Congress on a nuclear arms deal with Iran,  it will not dismiss the idea that Obama possesses the authority to unilaterally suspend sanctions without the approval of Congress.  The Washington Examiner reported that Senator Bob Corker (R) Tennessee and Senator Bob Menedez (D) New Jersey are pushing a bill that requires Senate approval for a deal with Iran. President Obama has said he will veto the bill, however, the Senate is quickly approaching a veto proof majority.

Interestingly enough, BizPac Review recently wrote about an article written in a newspaper in Saudi Arabia, praising Netanyahu and criticizing President Obama.

“This isn’t like a columnist or a blogger writing in the United States. Saudi Arabia doesn’t have a First Amendment – if opinions like this are making it into the “mainstream” press, it’s because they reflect the views of the government.”

“Israel and Saudi Arabia are mortal enemies, but a columnist at a pro-government newspaper in Saudi Arabia this week praised Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a friend to peace in the Middle East and branded President Obama “one of the worst American presidents” over his negotiations with Iran.”

“The Obama administration does not suffice with condemning Netanyahu’s visit. Obama has announced that he will not meet with Netanyahu on the grounds that he does not meet with state leaders a short while before elections take place in their countries, [though] elections in Israel will take place weeks after the visit!! Likewise, American Vice President Joseph Biden, whose presence at Netanyahu’s speech in Congress is expected by virtue of his constitutional role as Senate president, announced that he would be on a trip abroad [on the day of] Netanyahu’s speech!! U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry also said he would be in Switzerland meeting with the Iranians on the nuclear dossier and therefore would not be able to attend Netanyahu’s speech!!”

“Since Obama is the godfather of the prefabricated revolutions in the Arab world, and since he is the ally of political Islam, [which is] the caring mother of [all] the terrorist organizations, and since he is working to sign an agreement with Iran that will come at the expense of the U.S.’s longtime allies in the Gulf, I am very glad of Netanyahu’s firm stance and [his decision] to speak against the nuclear agreement at the American Congress despite the Obama administration’s anger and fury. I believe that Netanyahu’s conduct will serve our interests, the people of the Gulf, much more than the foolish behavior of one of the worst American presidents. Do you agree with me?”

A recent article in the Wall Street Journal reported,

” 71 percent of voters believe negotiations between the Obama administration and the Iranian regime will not halt the Islamic theocracy’s pursuit of nuclear weapons. Just 24 percent believe it will have an impact on the mullahs’s moves toward the bomb.” 

Is President Obama fulfilling the wishes of the people?  If he has funded an “anti-Netanyahu” voting machine with American taxpayer dollars against our wishes, then he should be held accountable for the damage that could permanently effect the relationship that has existed between Israel and the United States for decades. If the President decides to go forward with a nuclear deal with Iran without support of the Senate, it will become painfully obvious that he does not listen to the people or follow the rule of law regarding the governance of this Nation!

I’m Mad As Hell And I’m Not Going To Take It Anymore!

 

 

iStock_000010295104_Small“The president has far exceeded his constitutional authority. … We all want to do things to stop the president from his illicit activity.” – House Speaker John Boehner

“It is time to allow this Homeland Security funding measure to come to the floor. This is our colleagues’ chance to do exactly what they led their constituents to believe they’d do: defend the rule of law, without more excuses.” – Mitch McConnell

“It’s important for people who agree with us that the president doesn’t have this ability to put illegal immigration laws in place executively.” – Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise, the House GOP whip.

“The president chose to use an authority that he said 22 separate times he didn’t have the authority to do.” – House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy.

Each of these representatives voted today to fully fund the DHS and President Obama’s unconstitutional, illegal amnesty.  Each of them promised voters in November that they would not allow Obama to get away with passing illegal amnesty with his pen and phone.  They lied!

How many times will voters allow this to continue? When is the lying going to stop? Why are politicians allowed to use “bait and switch” and get away with it?

The Republicans that voted to pass this legislation are as bad as President Obama and need to be taken out of office.  What makes them any different from Obama?  Frankly they are worse. Why?  At least we all know Obama planned on “fundamentally changing” America. He admitted it and was voted into office anyway.  He has constantly told us over and over of his intentions. He promised to use his pen and phone to pass laws that he wants passed, regardless of the system of government our Republic demands.  At least he told the truth. They lied!

Republicans have lied and lied over and over again to their constituents. They promise to stand up to Obama’s illegal, unconstitutional executive orders, yet again and again they cave. They lied to get into office and then do exactly what Obama and Democrats tell them to do.

What are the people to do when their elected officials refuse to carry out their wishes? What should the people do when the government takes control of every aspect of our lives, against our will? What should the people do when the government of the people, by the people, for the people becomes of the government, by the government, for the government? When our voices and our votes no longer matter, what are we to do?

It is time to stand up and say enough!!! The 2016 Presidential election is around the corner. At this point, it seems our choices will once again be a  Clinton or a Bush. AGAIN!  The establishment has taken over our lives and forgotten their place.  They are elected by us, paid by us, and yet they have chosen to believe that we are their pawns to move around as they please. They do this all while stealing our hard-earned dollars, destroying the American dream, empowering illegals by forcing us to pay their way and allowing them a vote that will eventually move Americans right out of our own country!

They barely work, yet complain that there $174,000 salaries along with their ill-gotten millions through insider trading, isn’t enough to fund their multimillion dollar homes, jets and vacations, all while telling the American people that “income inequality” is our problem.  They claim we are “racists” and “bigots” all while they fuel the “divide and conquer” mentality. They point the finger of blame at each other while behind closed doors they make secret deals going against the very wishes of the American people. They take away our rights to our own property, take our jobs and give them to immigrants, refuse to seal our borders, expose us to terrorism by refusing to fight it or call it by name. They take control of our air and water and call if conservation. They tell us what we can eat and what we can drink because we don’t know any better. They take over our healthcare, charge us more, reduce the services, and require us to pick up the tab for those who don’t want to work. They take away our full-time jobs and replace them with part-time, under-employment and call it recovery. They take over our internet, saying they will protect us from the big, bad internet companies. They spy on us through our phones, our televisions, and our computers and call it protection,  they decide what news we watch by allowing one political faction to control the media, and threaten anyone who stands against them.  They use the IRS to punish any American who tries to enact change. They pledge allegiance to the United States and our flag, promise to uphold our Constitution and protect the American people, yet defy those pledges on a daily basis.

They criticize Russia because Putin has remained in control  for over 24 years, but the Clintons and the Bushes have controlled the Presidency for over 24 years and after the 2016 election, probably another 8, meaning only 2 families will have controlled our country for over 32 years.  When is it enough? When is it time to tell the establishment to go to hell?

We, the American people need to let our government know we will no longer accept the status quo! It is time to elect a President that does not represent Republicans or Democrats. It is time to rid ourselves of the two party system. It is time to elect an American who believes in the Constitution, the American Dream and the rule of law!

It is time to stop putting career politicians and lawyers into office.  No more criminals allowed in office. If you don’t pay your taxes, you’re fired! If you don’t do your job, you’re fired! If you take a bribe, you’re fired! If you lie to get elected, you’re fired!

It is time to do what our founding fathers meant for us to do. Everyday, hard-working Americans should represent our country for a short period of time, then go back to their jobs and their lives. Only then will the people’s voice be heard!  It is time for term limits, a balanced budget, and common sense.  No more Department of Education, no more Department of Human Resources, no more IRS, no more Federal Reserve Bank, no more Energy Department, no more stealing, cheating, fraud, and NO MORE LIES!!!

Obama and Occam’s Razor

shutterstock_178474667

Occam’s Razor?  A problem solving principle devised by William of Ockham, a logician in the 14th century and is still used today.  In its simplest form, it states,

“When you have competing theories that make exactly the same predictions, the simpler one is the better.”

Now, lets ask the questions,

  • Why would Obama continue to release dangerous terrorist prisoners from Guantanamo Bay, when the world is at war with Islamic terrorism?

 

  • Why Does President Obama and his administration refuse to call the attacks by terrorists, Islamic terrorism?

 

  • Why would President Obama tell the world, “the future does not belong to those who slander Mohammed?”

 

  • Why would President Obama refuse to secure our borders when terrorists are able to easily enter the U.S from our Southern border?

 

  • Why, in this atmosphere of Islamic terrorism, would President Obama actually increase the number of visas offered to Muslim countries? Visas that once offered are not tracked, allowing applicants to settle in our country undetected?

 

  • Why are known members of terrorist organizations allowed to keep their United States passports?

 

  • Why does President Obama continue to ignore the dangerous tactical and ideological convergence between the Islamic State terrorists and Boko Haram?

 

  • Why has President Obama continued to support the false narrative that al Qaeda has been decimated while they have claimed responsibility for the recent massacre in France?

 

  • Why would President Obama, a self-proclaimed Christian claim, in a perfect Arabic accent, that the “Islamic Call to prayer at sunset is one of the prettiest sounds on Earth?”

 

  • Why would President Obama bow to King Abdullah, a Muslim, yet not to Queen Elizabeth, a Christian?

 

  • Why does President Obama seem so intent on criticizing Netanyahu and Israel?

 

Let’s look at some facts regarding Barrack Obama’s past connections.

  • Obama’s grandfather, Hussin Onyango Obama (1895-1979) was a Muslim.
  • Obama’s father, Barack Obama Sr. identified himself as a Muslim, but spent much of his adult life as an atheist.
  • Obama’s stepfather, Lolo Soetoro, from Indonesia, practiced a form of Islam.
  • Obama worked on the Developing Communities Project which was an organization based on tradition of Marxist Saul Alinsky.
  • Obama had a fundraiser hosted by Bill Ayers who was part of the “Weather Underground,” labeled a domestic terrorist group by the FBI.
  • Obama’s role model, Frank Marshall Davis (1905-1987) was a communist.
  • Obama attended the church of Jeremiah Wright for 20 years.
  • Reverend Wright said, the U.S. could not accept a black man as president of  “this racist United States of America,” “the United States of White America,” and “the U.S. of KKK-A.  *
  • Winfrey, who joined Wright’s church in the mid-’80s, eventually left in the early ’90s. An article entitled “Something Wasn’t Wright” in the May 12, 2008, issue of Newsweek explains that she knew Wright’s rants were too radical for her fans. Interestingly, though Oprah endorsed Obama and helped catapult his books to the top of the bestseller lists, she has declined to endorse him for 2012.*
  • Obama never explicitly rejected the black power, anti-capitalist core of Wright’s teachings. That includes beliefs like Wright’s credo that “White folks’ greed runs the world in need.” For all Obama’s talk, he can’t claim to never have heard Wright say it. Obama titled his second book, The Audacity of Hope, after the very sermon where that line appears.*
  • Candidate Obama’s declared intention to “spread the wealth around” echoed what he had absorbed at those Trinity sermons. Now President Obama’s thinking clearly shows the same imprint, as when he preaches that “at a certain point you’ve made enough money.”*
  • Hillary Clinton–not John McCain– used Wright as a campaign issue against Obama.*
  • Obama’s second book, The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts of Reclaiming the American Dream’s title was derived from a sermon by Obama’s former pastor, Reverend Jeremiah Wright.*
  • Obama often mentioned the black sociologist Chancellor Williams’s jeremiad, The Destruction of Black Civilization, which argues that African civilization was destroyed by the acquisitiveness–the capitalist nature–of white European civilization. *
  • Obama and wife Michelle were married in a ceremony in 1992 presided over by Reverend Jeremiah Wright.*
  • Obama’s daughters, Malia Ann and Natasha were baptised by Reverend Jeremiah Wright.*
  • Obama had a close relationship with Columbia professor Rashid Khalidi, who previously worked for the PLO, classified as a terrorist group by the State Department.
  • Another Obama mentor, Tony Rexko is now serving a 10 year federal prison sentence on convictions of fraud and bribery.
  • Rexko and his Arab-American business associates donated hundreds of thousands of dollars too Obama’s campaign.
  • Khalid al-Mansour, an activist and outspoken enemy of Israel, was the key backer for Obama and his acceptance into Harvard. At the time he recommended Obama to Harvard, al-Mansour was representing top members of the Saudi Royal family seeking to exert influence in the United States. He was also advising Prince Alwaleed, the nephew of King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, who offered $10 million to rebuild Manhattan after 9/11.  Mayor Giuliani refused the money because Alwaleed made public statements saying U.S. policies contributed to the 9/11 attack.
  • Sen. John McCain publicly chastised The Los Angeles Times  for not releasing a videotape the newspaper said it possessed of a 2003 dinner for Khalidi, where Obama reportedly accused Israel of carrying out a “genocide” against the Palestinians.
  • Obama had close ties with Louis Farrakhan, top deputy of the Nation of Islam. In Farrakhan’s own words, he said of Obama, “we had an open line between us to discuss policy and strategy either directly or through intermediaries.” 
  • Farrakhan has called Jews “bloodsuckers,” “satanic” and accused them of running the slave trade. He has labeled gays as “degenerates.” In a 2006 speech, the ADL again condemned Farrakhan when he said: “These false Jews promote the filth of Hollywood that is seeding the American people and the people of the world and bringing you down in moral strength. … It’s the wicked Jews the false Jews that are promoting lesbianism, homosexuality. It’s wicked Jews, false Jews that make it a crime for you to preach the word of God, then they call you homophobic!”
  • Barrack and Michelle Obama attended several dinners of the AAAN (Arab American Action Network), whose Executive director was Hatem Abudayyeh. Hatem is on the White House logs attending policy briefings and his home was later raided by the FBI for ties to funding the Liberation of Palestine and other Middle Eastern terrorist groups.
  • George Soros a Liberal Democratic billionaire donated over $1 million dollars to Obama’s campaign for President and it was recently discovered that he also gave over $33 million to fund the protestors and looters in Ferguson, MO.

Is any of this starting to concern you?  Are any of President Obama’s connections starting to answer the questions posed above?  If not, they should.

If we were to apply Occam’s Razor theory to the questions asked and the connections Obama has in his life, the simplest answer would be that Barrack Obama is actually a Muslim and has no love for the United States and the free enterprise system or our Constitution.

The scariest fact here? All of these connections were well-known before 52% of Americans voted for Barack Obama!

Republicans and Democrats…A Choice Between Two Evils!

VoteBoth the Congress and the Senate passed a 2015 spending bill, in record time, that has been labeled a “Cromnibus.”  But where was the fight? Where were our representatives who swore they would not fund amnesty, Obamacare, taxpayer-funded abortion, and more irresponsible spending? No where to be seen!

About Obama’s illegal amnesty,

“We are going to fight the president tooth and nail if he continues down this path. This is the wrong way to govern. This is exactly what the American people said on Election Day they didn’t want.” – John Boehner

About the passage of Obamacare,

“And look at how this bill was written,”  “Can you say it was done openly, with transparency and accountability? Without backroom deals and struck behind closed doors hidden from the people? Hell, no, you can’t.” – John Boehner

“When we came here, we each swore an oath to uphold and abide by the Constitution as representatives of the people.” “But the process here is broken. The institution is broken. And as a result, this bill is not what the American people need nor what our constituents want.” – John Boehner

These are the exact words John Boehner spoke as recently as November, 2014, in reply to President Obama’s announcement to offer amnesty to millions of  illegals inside the United States and the passage of Obamacare, both bills, openly rejected by the American people.

So how did the Republican leader decide to fight President Obama on amnesty, Obamacare, abortion and spending? By giving the Department of Health and Human Services’s unaccompanied children’s program an $80 million increase. He also offered up an additional $14 million to school districts stuggling with the influx of illegal students. Add insult to injury…he has also agreed to give an additional $260 million to the Central American countries from where the illegals are coming. Obamacare was, once again, fully funded, along with Planned Parenthood, the largest provider of taxpayer-funded abortions, and the House signed off on increasing the amount wealthy donors can throw into the political arena, increasing the current cap of $32,400 to $777,600 per person per year.  Frank Dodd regulations have been rolled back allowing banks to participate in the same derivatives trading which exacerbated the financial crisis in 2008, and the real clincher? The bill calls for more spending then what the government anticipates bringing in, resulting in yet another year of increased debt, which has now surpassed the $18 trillion mark, representing a 70% increase in our national debt since Obama took office.

I think New York Post’s Kyle Smith hit the nail on the head when he said,

“2014 was the year when the truth was optional. 2014 was the year when convenient fabrication was the weapon of choice for celebrities, activists, big business and politicians.” 

In November of this year, we had a midterm election that trumped most others. The GOP swept the country by extending their majority to near historic levels, speaking loud and clear to President Obama, “enough is enough”!!! The American people said they did not like Obamacare and were not happy about our open borders and the surge of illegals allowed to enter into our country and take part in our taxpayer-funded services. The American people are no longer interested in bailing out anyone…especially the banks that caused the financial crisis in the first place, we do not want to pay for others abortions and we want the budget balanced, and for good measure, let’s throw in term limits. But is that what the American taxpayer got?

Even President Obama jumped on the bandwagon supporting the spending bill….what could this mean? Since when has the president ever agreed with the GOP? If he is signing off on this budget deal with no fight, then the American people are obviously the losers!

Lawmakers, led hand in hand by Boehner and Reid, signed off on a 1,603 page bill that Rollcall.com said,

“If members averaged 200 words per minute to read the dense legislative text, they would need 24 hours just to get through the bill.”

Joseph Curl from the Washington Times said,

“When House Speaker John Boehner campaigned for the leadership job years ago, he vowed to give members at least 72 hours to read any bill before a vote. Back in 2010 the speaker said he didn’t think ‘having 2000 page bills on the House floor serves anyone’s best interest – not the House, not for the members and certainly not for the American people.'”

I guess the massive 2,700 page, insurance canceling, $2.6 trillion budget draining,  Obamacare, “have to pass it to see what’s in it” bill, taught them no lessons. When will our representatives start studying history and learning from past mistakes? When will they stand up for the rule of law? When will they stand up and defend our Constitution? When will they say what they mean and do what they say?

If, in fact, the president’s actions on immigration are against the Constitution and the rule of law, then why would the GOP cave in on the budget negotiations and actually allow them to be funded? Even though the money only supports the illegal amnesty until February of 2015, doesn’t the vote itself validate the president’s illegal executive action?

Senator Ted Cruz took a stand on that issue and tried to fund the government for additional days allowing the House to reconvene on Monday to further discuss the bill.  Cruz lost the support of  most Republicans and Democrats, but he did get the vote on record for anyone wanting to know who supported the funding of Obama’s amnesty without a fight. It puts all politicians on record for supporting the bills that the American people do not support.

Even Democrat, Jim Moran said.

“Democrats got virtually everything they wanted in the bill. In twenty years of being on the appropriations committee, I haven’t seen a better compromise in terms of Democratic priorities.” 

When did lies become the new truth? When did misrepresenting, misinforming, misguiding, deceiving, defrauding, misdirecting and betraying the American people become the norm? I know absolute power corrupts absolutely, but it has definitely reached a new high. Add in the press, who refuses to truthfully inform the American people as to the real actions of our government, the real state of the economy and the job market, and we have the perfect storm brewing!

Once again, in words from Boehner  in 2010,

“Around this chamber, looking upon us are the lawgivers from Moses, to Gaius, to Blackstone, to Thomas Jefferson. By our actions today, we disgrace their values. We break the ties of history in this chamber. We break our trust with America.”

As Americans, it is hard to resolve the feelings of betrayal and even harder to come to terms with an election that all our politicians felt had nothing to do with them or their actions. It is hard to reconcile that our choices at the ballot box have come down to choosing between the best of two evils. When the depth of corruption, deceit and red tape bureaucracy reach such  astronomical levels, it is time for a complete overhaul! Fire them all!!

Separation of Church and State?

shutterstock_41791735

Is there really a separation of church and state and has the current administration honored it? Have Democrats around the country been stepping on our rights to Religious freedom?

In February, President Obama spoke at the National Prayer Breakfast and said,

 “It’s also clear that around the world, freedom of religion is under threat…..No society can truly succeed unless it guarantees the rights of all its people, including religious minorities.”

 But is that being practiced here in the United States? Are our religious freedoms being taken from us one day at a time? We continue to see case after case where this “separation” has been challenged.

Recently in Houston, the mayor, Annise Parker, started quite a firestorm when she demanded local pastors be served with subpoenas in regards to the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance, (HERO), signed into law in May. The subpoenas were issued after a law suit was filed by the pastors over a provision in the ordinance which would allow men, who identify as women, to use women’s bathrooms.

In a recent article by Dylan Baddour of PolitiFact, Texas,  the mayor of Houston, Annise Parker, instructed officials to issue subpoenas to local pastor’s requesting,

  • “All speeches, presentations, or sermons related to Houston Equal Rights Ordinance, (HERO), the petition, Mayor Annise Parker, homosexuality or gender identity prepared by, delivered by, revised by, or approved by you or in your possession.”
  • “All communications with members of your congregation regarding HERO or the petition.” (writings, notes, diaries, electronic or videotape recordings, emails, instant messages, text messages. ) Jared Woodfill, who is representing the pastors said,

“This is a mayor who has waged a full-scale war on the churches in Harris County. These pastors are standing up and saying enough is enough and we are not going to allow it to happen on our watch.”

In response to the mayor’s actions, more than 1,000 bibles were sent to Parker’s office in protest.  In a press conference today, Parker announced that she is directing the legal department to withdraw the subpoenas.

Meanwhile in California, Governor Gerry Brown is demanding that all employers, including churches, offer and pay for elective abortion through their health insurance policies. The LifeLegal Defense Foundation and Alliance Defending Freedom are representing 7 churches in a lawsuit against the requirement. Casey Mattox, an attorney with Alliance said,

“Forcing a church to be party to elective abortion is one of the most unimaginable assaults on our most fundamental American freedoms. California is flagrantly violating the federal law that protects employers from being forced into having abortion in their health insurance plans. No state can blatantly ignore federal law and think that it should continue to receive taxpayer money.” 

In Idaho, city officials have demanded that ordained ministers must celebrate same-sex weddings or face fines and jail time. One case involves Donald and Evelyn Knapp, owners of the Hitching Post Chapel. They refused to marry a same-sex couple and as a result are now facing a 180 day jail term and $1,000 fine for each day they refuse to marry the couple. The city of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, has a non discrimination statute and recently the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals struck down Idaho’s constitutional amendment defining marriage between and man and a woman. Based on this, the city feels the Knapp’s should be forced to perform the marriage even though it goes against their religious beliefs. The Alliance Defending Freedom has filed a motion arguing that this action,

“violates first and 14th Amendment rights to freedom of speech, the free exercise of religion, substantive due process and equal protection.”

In 2011, family members, visiting wounded soldiers at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, were prohibited from bringing Bibles or any religious reading materials to their loved ones.  When the policy was challenged by Representative Steve King, (R-IA), the medical facility rescinded the policy.

In 2013, The Alliance for Religious Liberty outlined many examples where the military restricted religious expression. In one extreme example, thousands of soldiers received “equal opportunity training,” where “Evangelical, Christians, Catholics and Orthodox Jews were classified as “Religious Extremists” comparable to the KKK and Al Qaeda. Those attending the training were also told, in writing, that they could not support these extreme organizations by fund-raising, recruiting, attending meetings, organizing or distributing literature.” In a letter by the Alliance, they stated,

“In other words, thousands of soldiers were told that they could not go to church, lead Sunday School, tithe, share their faith, or give out Bibles.”

Congressman John Fleming, (R-LA), introduced an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act to ensure religious freedom for service members and chaplains. The Amendment passed the House Armed Services Committee and another passed the Senate Armed Services Committee. However, President Obama said the additional provisions were  “unnecessary and ill-advised.” His advisors recommended he veto the Religious Liberty Amendment.

We, as Americans must understand and demand that our constitutional rights be upheld by the very government, that was elected by the people, and for the people.  The United States Declaration of Independence, drafted by Thomas Jefferson and edited by the Committee of five, states,

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Have these infringements on our religious rights been equally enforced? Have the same demands been made on local Mosques or Temples? Has our government become so politically correct that they create special privileges for some while infringing on the rights of others?

As Americans, we must insist, even with changing times, that the constitutional rights granted us by the founding fathers of this great nation, must remain intact. Our government must protect the “unalienable rights.” without caving to special interest groups, political favor, or a deteriorating morality. We must not allow the government to enforce or mandate any religious doctrines, nor tell us how or what to believe. Although it is not written in the constitution, we have the unalienable right to a separation of church and state.

Votes? Inherent Value or a Political Means to an End?

vote-fraud

 

With midterm elections around the corner,  we have to ask ourselves if our voting system should be about the inherent value of our votes, or simply about winning elections?

Currently,  voter ID laws are the object of fights around the country in a game played out by politicians wanting to broaden their base and win elections.  Unfortunately, the only losers in this game are the American people.

When you are a citizen of the United States, born or naturalized, you are blessed with the opportunity and the right to cast your vote for a representative of your choice. Along with the vote comes great power and  responsibility. You, the individual voter, has the power to grant a politician, of your choice, the responsibility to govern our states and our country with integrity, based on the rule of law and our  constitution, framed by the morals and ethics which have guided this country for generations.

We MUST protect and preserve the integrity of our voting system.  If we allow the system to become corrupt, or to be manipulated then we will see our way of life fundamentally transformed and/or destroyed by the few who have become so powerful that they are willing to do anything, including ignoring and encouraging voter fraud, to hold onto that power.

Since the 2012 elections, there have been hundreds of people and/or groups charged, investigated and convicted of voter fraud. Many involving our government officials.  In a recent news story, it was reported that a Connecticut Democrat Representative, Christina Ayala was arrested on 19 charges of voter fraud. If we cannot trust our elected officials to maintain the integrity of our voting system, then who are we to trust?

Although Democrats continue to claim there is no such thing as voter fraud,  the Cooperative Congressional Election Study (CCES) found,

 “Because non-citizens tended to favor Democrats (Obama won more than 80 percent of the votes of non-citizens in the 2008 CCES sample), we find that this participation was large enough to plausibly account for Democratic victories in a few close elections. Non-citizen votes could have given Senate Democrats the pivotal 60th vote needed to overcome filibusters in order to pass health-care reform and other Obama administration priorities in the 111th Congress.”

In looking at a small sample of voter fraud headlines, you may tend to disagree with Democrats’ claims,

  • A Shorewood man was charged with 143 counts of voter fraud.
  •  Three women were arrested and charged with 56 counts of voter fraud, in Houston.
  •  A California Senator gets jail time in Voter Fraud Case.
  •  Over 140 cases of Voter Registration Fraud found in Minneapolis.
  •  Over 80 Voter fraud cases sent to Iowa prosecutors.
  • Ex-magistrate in West Virginia 4th official to plead guilty to voter fraud
  •  Woman uses 5 absentee ballots in voter fraud case in Texas.
  •  Cincinnati poll worker sentenced to 5 years for voter fraud in 3 presidential elections.
  •  FEMA official charged in Florida voter fraud
  •  State Representative and Democratic Party worker sentenced to 18 months for 20 counts of voter fraud
  •  Former MA lawmaker convicted of Voter Fraud Scheme
  •  New York Assemblymen uses voter fraud for gaining power.
  •  Over 500 non-citizens removed from Colorado Voter rolls
  •  Voter fraud found in Vernon, CA election – could change winner
  •  10 NDSU football players plead guilty to voter fraud.
  •  Kentucky voter fraud allegedly funded by drug money
  •  State sweep finds 1,251 non citizens voted in Florida

We have also seen alleged cases of fraud involving the stuffing of ballot boxes, non officials allowed to  transport ballots, voters using absentee ballots of friends, neighbors and even dead family members to cast more than one vote, double registration within 2 or more states, and illegal immigrants registering and casting ballots in elections.

Recently, in North Carolina, when SBOE officials did a sample cross check of their database, they discovered 6% or 600 non-U.S. citizens were registered to vote.  Jay DeLancy, executive director of the Voter Integrity Project of North Carolina, said

“We want to know how such a large number of non-U.S. citizens were ever registered to vote in the first place. There is clearly a system failure here and we need the Board of Elections and the DMV to help the Legislature and the public understand where the problem lies.”

So, if voter fraud is alive and well, why would any reasonable person or official, elected to uphold the law of our land, fight against a process that ensures the very integrity of the voting booth? Why are our elected officials refusing to acknowledge and repair the issues at hand within our voting system?  Why would Democratic representatives across the country be fighting to give immigrants who entered our country illegally, the right to vote?

In 2012, election officials from more than 60 countries traveled to the United States to observe the presidential elections as part of a program run by the International Foundation for Electoral Systems. (IFES).  The majority of the officials agreed that the open voting system used in the United States, would never work, or be allowed in their countries. They felt the lack of IDs along with online and mail-in voting, allowed for too much fraud. They were also surprised that provisional ballots were even offered and shocked that local poll workers were allowed to “handle” the ballots.

The majority of countries around the world, take their election process extremely seriously. Most require IDs along with voter confirmation notices in order for a ballot to be cast.   Many countries mark voters with indelible ink to insure that each citizen casts only one vote. Why, would the most powerful, and once, the most influential nation in the world not take steps to ensure the integrity of our election process?

In a recent decision by the Supreme Court on voting restrictions in Texas, Justice Stevens noted that there was sufficient evidence of voter fraud,

“It remains true, however, that flagrant examples of such fraud in other parts of the country have been documented throughout this Nation’s history by respected historians and journalists, that examples have surfaced in recent years, demonstrate that not only is the risk of voter fraud real but that it could affect the outcome of a close election.”

However, in the United States, although photo ID’s are required in order to complete the most menial of tasks on a daily basis, it is not required in all states in order to perform the most sacred action entrusted to every citizen of our nation; voting.

There have also been many reports of voting machine errors. Representative Jim Moynihan of Illinois,  said his vote was changed when he cast his ballot.

“While early voting at the Schaumburg Public Library today, I tried to cast a vote for myself and instead it cast the vote for my opponent. You can imagine my surprise as the same thing happened with a number of races when I tried to vote for a Republican and the machine registered a vote for a Democrat.”

In a similar situation, where a selection was changed three times by the voting machine, I contacted the State Board of Elections, who responded by saying,

“Apparently there was an issue in which one candidate was selected and the screen selected another. We regret that this happened. The sensors in the touch screens occasionally need to be calibrated so the area touched on the screen reflects the voter’s choice.”

If this is a situation that has occurred on other occasions, why are these machines not calibrated prior to election day? If these machines can, in any way, change, alter or switch a voters selection, without their knowledge, then why are they even used?

In testing the EDGE voting machines used in Virginia, researchers found “significant security weaknesses throughout the system.”The nature of these weaknesses raise serious questions as to whether the software can be relied upon to protect the integrity of elections, and lack reliable measures to detect or prevent tampering.” (https://www.verifiedvoting.org/resources/voting-equipment/sequoia/avc-edge/)

If there is even the slightest chance that a vote can be altered, or that a non-citizen can cast a ballot, then  the public at large and our elected officials should  be working together to validate our voting system. You must ask  yourself the question,

“Why would one political faction be so determined to expose our voting system to fraud, by allowing anyone, citizen or not, ID or not, to participate in the selection of our elected officials? “

In this day and age of such political polarization, and a time when the media and our elected officials refuse to listen to the voice of the people,  we should all be concerned about the loss of the only voice that we have left, OUR VOTE!   When we lose our voice in the voting booth, the very foundation of our Nation will exist no more.

Divide and Conquer: A Game of Thrones?

 

img372

I recently attended my monthly book club,  which is comprised of women from differing political persuasions, including but not necessarily limited to conservatives and liberals.  We can have some interesting discussions, as you might expect, especially when the topic broaches anything political.

 

But today, in this current polarized atmosphere, what might have been interesting, informative and polite conversations that dispense at the end of the evening with the world’s problems solved, they tend to morph into disagreements and in some cases, hurt feelings, frustration and anger.

 

I have always felt that women can discuss issues, contemplate solutions and together solve just about any problem. We all have many things in common and of course as mothers and care takers, we have the ability to step back and see the path that must be taken in order to spare the lives of our children and make the world a safer place for future generations.  We are not interested in war, but would have no hesitation in stepping up to the plate if our families or our way of life were threatened. In the past, after a banner evening of solving the ills of the world, I’ve left convinced that if my book club  could rule the world; it would be a much better place. Not any longer.

 

So, what has created such a wall between us on the political front? We’ve always known differences were there, but now they’ve somehow taken root and grown into a wall of vines so thick that we are unable to see through them.  What has pushed us into our respective corners, causing a rift that cannot be resolved? What has caused such polarization?

 

I have been guilty of angry responses to angry attacks on my beliefs. Why? When you take the time to thoroughly research the facts on an issue facing the country, you expect some thoughtful discussion. You expect someone to listen before they attack or dismiss you. We cannot all take the monumental amount of time required to research each and every issue facing the United States today. Yet instead of listening to those who have some expertise on a subject and asking questions or adding additional useful information to the debate, we choose to respond with anger, shut them down or we close our minds and refuse to hear. Why? Most Americans want to discuss the state of our Union, not for political gain, monetary gain, or power, but for the simple reason that they love this country and are concerned for her future. Why are we otherwise so determined to spread the misinformation and rhetoric that is fed to us by the very politicians and media who are determined to take control of every aspect of our lives?

 

We will always have differing views as long as there are people on this planet. But why has polarization become so commonplace? I believe the situation has become formidable because of the atmosphere fabricated by the very leaders we have elected to protect us. Our leaders have irresponsibly, but very purposefully, used our emotional responses to current events against us.  Ultimately they use the disharmony they’ve created to manipulate us into playing a game they have invented where the winners have been pre-determined: them. I know it’s a cliché, but “divide and conquer” has become a reality in today’s political climate.

 

As Americans, we must be able to recognize the leaders who use polarization for their own political ends.  We must resist the urge to be manipulated and instead work towards a common goal and find solutions that make the country stronger, without demonizing those who disagree.  Don’t we all want what is best for our Country? Don’t we all want a world where our children and we are not bogged down in debt and allowed to live the lives we choose without government interference?

 

We have to recognize that politicians, special interest groups and the media have one thing on their mind: winning, power and expanding their own wallets.

We must remember that we all have differing views based on personal life experiences, therefore resulting in our belief in, or support of specific solutions that we feel or have had success in using.  We cannot only look towards those who believe as we do, but seek out those who believe differently and listen to their points of view. We must offer the opportunity for those of an opposing view to explain their position, offer the facts supporting their stance and in turn offer ours. Solutions can only be reached and supported when all opinions are heard, respected, discussed, considered, and backed by fact not political rhetoric.

Why are we so opposed to hearing the facts when they go against the very agenda that our politicians are pushing? Why do we have such blind faith in what our leaders tell us? Are their claims backed by fact or are they just using their power to further divide us on the issues in order to control us? Do our leaders have a history of lying? I think we all know the obvious answer to that question.

We have been purposefully divided by race, religion, ethnicity, sexual preference and gender.

Statistics currently show that Americans have no faith in their political leaders. So why do we continue to vote for the same representatives and allow them to dictate the rules of the game while refusing to discuss the actual facts, and enact the very solutions that will serve the general good? Why do we continue to demonize and shut down the American citizens who only want what is best for our country yet put blind faith in the leaders who go to the extreme to keep us in the dark?

Have they trained us so well, that we no longer recognize manipulation at its worse? Have they manipulated us so well that we continue to believe and allow the media to misinform the very public they vowed to inform?  The media who took an oath to provide a fair and comprehensive account of events and issues through honesty and integrity? Where is the outrage towards the lies and deceit? Where is the demand for change? Why do we allow these leaders, special interests and the media to make the rules that will ultimately cut us out of the game and result in our own demise?

Unfortunately, America has become a place of apathetic individuals easily manipulated because we have been distracted from the real issues at hand. As technologically advanced as we have become, it boggles the mind that the “masses” have time to scroll through the lives of the many on Facebook, but no time to educate themselves in the matters that will affect their lives and their children’s lives for generations to come.

When we allow politicians, special interest groups and the media to lie to the American people, create negative ads attacking honest opponents falsely, making promises they have no intention of keeping, all without consequences, the American people are the real losers.

When we allow the media to be bought, sold and controlled by one political faction, to pick and choose the stories they want to report, to omit stories that do not put their agenda in a positive light, to report the news with their own personal political slant, then the American people are the real losers.

When we allow the government to become corrupt, operate with no consequences or accountability, employ friends and supporters without adequate experience, spend our money irresponsibly, tie our hands with regulations and taxes, target those with differing views and repress our constitutional rights, then the American people are the real losers.

When we allow our educational system to expose our children to only one political philosophy, to pick and choose the history they want to teach, to suppress our freedom of speech and religion, to teach our children what to think and not how to think, the American people are the real losers.

We must recognize that in order to raise a generation of real thinkers, problem solvers, and our future leaders, we must expose them to every view, every side of the story, and allow them to decide what is best for them, their families and our Nation.  We will not raise true leaders and problem solvers by denying exposure to all the facts, ignoring history or by demonizing those with differing views.  The United States cannot remain the true example of freedom to the world or maintain our position of power when we systematically allow our government to become our jailers.

It is time for the left and the right to come together as the people of the United States against our common enemy and demand that our government hand us back the keys to the castle and take up their rightful position in servitude to the American people as our constitution demands!
